We visited on a Saturday midmorning and loved the facilities, witnessing the mountain bikers, children at the acro-branch, hikers and the market goers at the Irene market. Plenty parking, well sign-posted, clean toilets.

Great place for outdoor people. Activities for all from trail running, walking your dog, mountain biking and fun activities for kids. Great food and drinks at the restaurant. Note that this place prefers card payments.

The Big Red Barn is an awesome setting for outdoor enthusiasts, parents with busy kids, and cyclists. They dont take bookings so on a busy days you will probably wait 15-3-mins for a table. Also, a 10% gratuity is automatically added to your bill (which...More
