  • This nature park offers several walking paths relaxing; Some trails are lasting half an hour while one by one hour. The animals are free so not necessarily see. There are emu (we saw them in the parking lot near the entrance to the information center) and then we did one of the short routes and we saw three koalas!! How exciting!!

  • 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.
