Wow, bring your camera, and be amazed at the way nature has shaped the Limestone rocks that millions of years ago were on the sea bed, in some places they look like a giant has placed one slab on top of another and it's all been done by Sun, Rain, Wind, Sleet and Snow

We visited off season and we loved it. The rock formations were really impressive and the walk was just difficult enough to be entertaining with four teens. Our elderly parents managed too, albeit a lot slower ! I did get the distinct impression the park is used to catering to a large crowd in summer, perhaps making the experience a... More

What an amazing place this is. Very unusual dramatic limestone rock formations, interstate flora and fauna. Great walks from the visitor centre.

Some where in the middle the yellow and green... More

A gem of a natural park in an impressive setting. Just driving to the visitor centre is worth the effort but taking either the short or long loop trail puts you amidst the many unusual rock formations and for us, a great photo op with a herd of ibex. The trails, although short are not flat and good shoes and... More

We chose the "green" route as we had children 4 and 1.8 years old. The route is marked as "easy" and requring 45... More

We took the 2 hour walk through the park. It is very impressive and beautifull. The park doesn't charge entrance and they rely on gifts only, do give them something so they can take care of the park.

After a little ride going out of Antequera you will arrive in a scenery made of stones eroded by the wind and the water. Stacked stones with various shapes gives the impression to be on another planet. Environment very special worthed to be seen.
