  • A beautiful park with amazing views of the lagoon. The roads are in perfect condition. We didn't see much wildlife but we had come for the birds and the views so we were very happy!

  • The q was getting long. The staff RAN between the cars and their office to speed things up. They were extremely efficient, courteous and professional. Well done.
  • The Park was spotlessly clean. The flowers in the Postmas section of the Park were fantastic. The display this year was the best for many years. Unfortunately some people cannot resist breaking the rules by walking amongst the flowers.
  • A very scenic national park with diverse landscape, from ocean views to flower walking trails. Best enjoyed in spring / summer but can be visited year round.
  • A beautiful place. My experience was one of complete peace being surrounded by so much natural beauty.
  • Tranquility to the core. If you lost peace in your life, GPS here
