  • We went there during the week. Ideal due to the lack of visitors around. We think that this park can be visited all year around. There are plenty of trails which can be chosen accordingly...

  • We went along the Park Rd and reached the parking area. Here there are the John Forrest Tavern, barbecue and picnic facilities and of course the toilets. The entrance fee is AUD 15 per car and pets...

  • Not much water last week but still a great walk and a beautiful park to visit. The ladies at the Tav were super friendly as well! With a nice ice-cream sandwich to cool off after a picturesque hike, what's not to love?
  • Looking for a true outback experience? walk or bike in the footsteps of railway history on this enchanting trail. Holes remain in the rocks from the dynamite blasts of days long past and you're sure to encounter a Kangaroo on this rich red earth Australian disused railway line!
