  • Small but amazing little park! This is a must stop if you're going by. Come at dawn or dusk for the best wildlife experience.
  • Nice walks, good views, abundant wildlife. Has a walk that is suitable for wheelchairs and prams. Some walks are undulating.
  • The view is just spectacular and the tour guides and staff at the stores are extremely friendly and have great knowledge of the land and their ancestors.
  • Great to stop for a rest and see some local wildlife or spend some time walking around.
  • Excellent place to watch Koalas, Kangaroos and Emus in their natural habitat. Short and long trecking/walking trails with beautiful views.
