    Beautiful walk for kids for discovering little animals or for the fitness person trying to smash out 10 km around all dam . You can swim in dam or hire / bring own paddle boards and kayak s to paddle around dam. Water is cold and will out your giblets in your throat but still nice and refreshing.

    Absolutely beautiful! Very popular and extremely great setting for families, friends or business functions to gather, eat and simply enjoy the natural surroundings. Highly recommended.

    Beautiful surroundings. A while since I've visited. Must say that the addition of a large dining deck adds an inviting space for families to relax and enjoy a meal together. ❤
