Take the time to drive this slowly and really enjoy the bird life and the mammals . The scenery is dramatic and there are many trails to explore

There are several trails to walk, for younger and also older people. We, as 65 plus did the waterfall trail and had a wonderful hike of two hours. A pity we did not see many birds because it was to late. The breeze kept us quite cool as you walk along the river.

Amazing hike from start to finish. It was off peak season so the hike was very tranquil and pleasant throughout. For nature lovers whom haven't been to SA the different flora is certainly an experience we enjoyed. Only issue we had was the lack of signage as we ventured deep in the trail tracks, but otherwise highly recommended!

We did the 10 km drive through the reserve and the scenery was stunning. It is also possible to walk, run or cycle through the reserve.

We went for one of the walks to a waterfall. Lovely route with river to the side all the way. Nature beautiful especially after all the rain in winter.

Lovely Walks in the most majestic scenery. Very wet at this time of the year and the stream was running strongly.

Taking a walk through this area brings back the need to keep in touch with nature and our natural heritage in SA. The reserve was quiet and safe, giving us time just to wander and chat. Perfect for an afternoon or picnic

Great outdoor spot for any out door lover. Whether you hike, mountain bike or even play paintball. The scenery is breath taking, fresh air is great.

Went there with friends to go cycling. Even though I got heat stroke from the extremely hot day it was amazing to go cycling. Afterwards we had milkshakes in the cafe which were delicious !!!
