Hi Kevin, thanks for your review. As you found there’s plenty to see at The Ridge. The3 pubs in the scrub could be described as the last of the Wild West!! The locals are very friendly and make you welcome. Not to be missed. Mark

Sorry, I do not know but I would say probably. I hope you enjoy your stay there it is a very nice park if you accept the fact that it is very difficult to grow grass there.
