This park is a MUST visit and one day isn't enough. Loads to see and the tall trees, lakes and autumn leaves are such a gorgeous sight. Cosy Olinda Town which you will definitely have to check out.

It is a beautiful place with extraordinary gardens, great native flora and fauna and lots of fantastic shops and eateries. Love the tall trees and the majestic ferns. A lovely drive that artisans, hippies and those of discerning tastes will find something to love. Brilliant!
