Its was raining when we visited the park, nevertheless it was very beautiful and relaxing. Don't forget to enjoy a coffee and perhaps some snack at the fall cafe.

What a great relaxing place, not only beautiful, but so much to do, you can kayak, walk, BBQ, swim, check out the Falls, camp, see glow worms, enjoy the lake, picnic , great to let the kids use up extra energy and also there is a great little cafe to enjoy.

We parked by the power station as it was the first parking we came across, but as we walked realised that if you keep driving there is plenty of parking at the information centre and even at the start of the bush walk. We walked around the lake, stunning with picnic benches all around. We also did the bush walk, you can get great photos in the waterfall and you can also see glow worms at night! On the way back, spent ages climbing the rocks at the falls themselves, some were quite slippy though so be careful!! Also, tried to get a drink but the cafe is only open Wednesday-Sunday so bare in mind.

We took the kids up there to go feed the swans and ducks by the lake. So much fun. Beautiful park to drive through. The waterfalls are spectacular.
And make sure to go do the glow worm track at night. It’s free and the most spectacular sight.
