  • Great place to go with kids. Red and Orange pointers The last volcano ain't recommend for prams. Green arrow pointer boardwalk is pram friendly.
  • Lots of wildlife, beautiful views and a great information centre. Easy walks. Make sure you do a drive along the northern part of the rim for views all the way to the ocean.
  • Fantastic place to visit. Heaps to see and loads of walks from easier to more challenging. You could easily spend the day exploring and enjoy a BBQ in the grounds during the evening.
  • Would be better with more water in the surrounding lake. Weeds have overtaken the native fauna. Signage on the walks could be better.
  • Great if you want a walk and to see emus up close. There is a visitors centre that does drinks and ice creams once you have had a walk or bbqs if you want to cook up a storm.
