Good picnic spot. Loved the bush walk. Historical railway tunnel. Beautiful rock form allover. Plenty of BBQ places and there are public toilets. Great tavern with friendly kangaroos.
Great place for a bush walk and picnic. Pub is nearby if you want a cooked meal. Plenty of wildlife and a range of different length walks appropriate for young children.
