Only went there after playing Golf at local course. Had we known how beautiful it was would have spent more time. Not for the faint hearted. Easy walks are available but some of the harder ones exceptional. Just returned from New Zealand which was fantastic,...More

An easy walk from Echo Point. But with low rainfalls this year there’s not much to see but still worth it.
