This is a super place to bring kids or just to relax with a coffee like we did. Best friendly service, can't fault it. Just have to pay for parking

Heaps of places to eat and drink. Filled with interesting history. Maybe more for younger kids not teens but the zip line good for teens. Ship better for younger families
