Nice drive to this isolated spot . I imagine kids would love exploring this place. We had it all to ourselves and enjoyed following the little paths to the caves and narrow passageways.

Took the kids here for a look and a picnic after being told about it by a friend. What a great place. Very peaceful and the kids had so much fun scrambling all around the rock formations and boulders.

We had a lovely afternoon tea picnic here. Then spent some time exploring the 'caves' and stone formations. The views from the top were great. We could see Bald Rock in the distance.

Great place to take kids as there is so many walks to explore. Pack a picnic lunch as it is a very peaceful place to eat.

Take a picnic lunch and let the kids run wild (under supervision). The views are stunning and there are plenty of granite hidey holes for children.
