Don’t just stop at the visitor centre, go for one of the walks - you won’t regret it. THe staff are so helpful. And afterwards have a meal in the visitor centre.

You just need to slow down...watch the sides of the road for the little critters and use high beam when no other cars in front or oncoming. Don't get distracted when driving and you'll be fine.

Not too sure about the sunset tour. Ask the visitors centre. Really helpful staff. And some great gifts to take home.
