  • Interesting facts along the way. It had rained the day before and the dam was overflowing, very spectacular. Great for a picnic and playground for the kids. Would be great in summer for a swim. 
  • This place is great, clean, cheap and has a good location. We saw wild animals while we were there and then drove about 20 minutes to an animal sanctuary that I definitely recommend. (Tidbinbilla sanctuary)
  • Great campground with lots of facilities. There's a nice stream close by that would be perfect for summer. We even saw kangaroos passing by the camp area. It does get busy though as it's a free camp site.
  • Worth the money !! And the best place for the first time campers. Basic facilities are good but firewood run out of stock, so make sure to buy ahead.
  • Great place for a picnic. Good facilities, well maintained
  • Great family day out
