This is a large park, 42 hectares which is pretty big, indeed! The trails are nice and are a smooth pebble surface so it will work for wheelchairs or baby strollers. Overall the trails are easy to walk with few hills or descents. There is...More

Rather disappointed, as the garden, though well laid out was virtually all greenery and tall trees. For a place like Emerald this was probably quite an achievement, considering its outback location. Not many facilities for picnicking or just sitting around. Toilets were not easy to...More
