  • A gem of a place so much to do from long walks to the park there's a field of animals zip wire and tree top obstacle course both are amazing and well worth the money. The cafe is fabulous,beautiful homemade food. Definitely a great day out
  • It has beautiful Forrest's and wildlife , the wood trails are amazing epically with its sculptors and flora. The miner museum is very interesting , it explains the history of the town and is coal mines.
  • Great place. Super day out for kids. Staff very nice and helpful to my daughter doing the tree climb course/wall climb. Great walk. Next time I'll book the zip line in advance online as it was booked out.
  • We took the family for a full activity packed day out. We zip-lined, paddle-boated, tree-top-walked and more. The cafe was very busy and seemed a bit over whelmed today but the food was very nice. Overall an excellent place to spend a day out work great facilities and scenery.
