Visited over the Easter period, and it was surprisingly quiet. Took part in a carrot hunt, which our 5 year old loved. Would definitely recommend. Never been before and it's practically on our doorstep.

Hello Tanya, Sorry for the late reply. Our car park is opposite the site or there is a lay by on the side of the road that you can use. Parking is also free. Hope to see you soon.

hello,is it far to walk because ive been told its 40 minites walk to the waterfall is it good for old people?

Response from liz1910 |
No, the whole site can be accessed in 40 minutes-if one just wants a quick visit. The waterfall is 10 minutes at the most -ground is a little uneven+ gravel . Well worth a look especially if one is a N T Member.
