Worth a visit if you're in the area, just before you get to Cataract Gorge. Zip lining & rock climbing for the adventurous. A short boat ride & "The Dark Ride" for something more tame.

We had a lovely time here, terrific activities, well priced, not crowded. The kids loved the flying foxes and the cliff walks. Nice craft beer and cafe, and a very loud canon blast every hour on the pirate ship. Great place.

Ashleigh you can always go in and check out the prices and see everything, to make your decision. You can walk around the whole thing without having to pay entry, and then decide what you want to go on.
