My trip here was great. the track paths were clear and nicely layed out with helpful signs to guide you and is a great place to go birdwatching for all you avid watchers. In one particular section I was amazed by how many butterflies were flying around. So much so, they kept on bumping into me. The park has two... More

For the bird watcher you can see several species here. A little out of the way (isolated) for the solo traveller, so take a friend. cars parked a way from the site of a small waterway where there are birds, pandanus and general peaceful atmosphere. Good place for a picnic after a walk of about 500 metres. Take your binoculars!

Very plain. Track overgrown and not very interesting. Only one small section of tropical rainforest area.

couldn't watch the famous any birds. And there are 3 BBQ places. I looked forward to be able to do wonderful trail in the park. But I couldn't do active trail and not feel so good.

Great outing, about 30 people including many parents with young children enjoyed a two hour walk through mostly savannah woodland, identifying birds, insects and plants, and learning about their ecology.
