Very nice nature park with interesting geological features. We did three different walks here but only saw a couple of emoes, and various smaller birds. The central information centre has trail maps and nice coffee.

This place was a clean nature. Nothing much was observed. Took awhile to hike up for a view but pretty windy.

Hi, it's always best to pre book tours if it's something you really want to do so as not to be disappointed. If you are in Warrnambool over Easter or school holiday times it can be very busy. Enjoy your stay: )
