    What a hidden gem! This is such a fantastic, affordable place to go for the day! Only about $8 entry for an adult and you get to see so many cute animals!! They are all well looked after too. There's a few activities you can do down by the water too such as swimming, kayaking and paddle boarding for a small fee. A great day out for all ages!

    I do love nature, and I am always on the hunt for the best tracks for my Sunday walks. Here I found some of the best around Brissy. One of my favourite tracks has been partially closed for a couple of months, but there's always the option to explore different tracks, or to dip your toes in the dam if you are not afraid of cold water.

    Beautiful rural feeling but reasonably central ‘Aussie’ family activity. Easy walks for kids. Can pay to visit a few native animals in discovery centre - fish, lizards, wombat, wallaby, tree kangaroo. Bonus Cafe on site too with tree views

    Has everything in one. A nice outdoor cafe, a hiking path, a lake to kayak and swim, a small animal Discovery Centre, and wedding ceremony areas. I got married there and it was the right choice 👌👌👌

    Absolutely amazing place for a hike any time of the year. The earlier the better, just make sure to stay on the main tracks.
