Wonderful art, spectacular views and a great dining experience. The Margaret Olley exhibit is worth the trip alone but then you have all the other art ... not to mention the wonders of mother nature!

We went particularly to see the Margaret Olley Art Centre which did not disappoint. The recreation of her house, her paintings, the videos etc all combined to make a fantastic display and a fitting tribute to a talented artist and generous human being!
