Wear appropriate footwear. The rocks are slippery when wet. I recommend taking a picnic lunch, and food for a BBQ

Donnelly's Castle is a great place to visit with kids. You can climb on and through enormous boulders. The kids pretended to be bushrangers searching for the perfect hideout.

Its not a castle, but large granite boulders with caves and overhangs that would have made a great home to the ancients! Its a bit of a drive on gravel road to get there, but well worth a visit.
