The locals are great to have close, that's the kangaroos and birds. Could spend more time here. Great picnic areas in the day area. A must to go back.

We were walking with a toddler so needed to curtail my ambitions to go to the top of the Pyramid but we got to the last little bit before it was necessary to climb. Gorgeous acacias everywhere and I'd love to come back in spring...More

Lots to do and not enough time. Winery for kids to run around and play while adults enjoy savoury, little places of discovery and out of place national park that fits all Ages

There's not a lot to see here, but there are good walking tracks for a wide age group. Off the beaten track, but worth the effort

The hot water in the showers are set on a 3 minute timer then cut out. There is no hot water in the wash up area, just cold. Hope this helps.
