  • Great place for barbe and picnic. Beware of the Dingos in the evening!
  • Great outdoor venue. Plenty of space for children young and old alike. Lots to explore and see
  • Lovely place with friendly guides and beautiful scenery
  • Our visit was part of an organised tour, and although our guide gave us a good insight, we felt that our visit there deserved more time.
  • Great place to stop and rest if you are traveling across the country.
