“Stunning Scenery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

So beautiful. This is an absolute 'must visit' for your Lonnie trip. The scenery is awe inspiring, and the resident peacocks make it even more special!

“Nice area to explore”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

The walk around the basin is a very easy walk but there are a few other walks around the basin roughly 40 mins return to 2 hour return walks. I would recommend walking up the gorge(roughtly where the entrance can be found next to the bridge which you will not miss.

“More than I expected - just excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014 via mobile

This is 100% a must do.
We parked on the side close to the water instead of the car park. We didn't know it was a paid car park either so escaped paying parking so that was great.

The walk along the water on the footpath was great. It was slightly overcast that day and cold but the view was still gorgeous.

When we got it the reserve I was pleasantly surprised. So much work has gone into it.
There is a cable cart, people mover for those that can't walk up and down stairs, swimming pool, gas bbqs, cafe, bridge, animals, children's play area - just fab.

If going in summer and it gets hot enough the pool and area around it looks great.

If in winter, rug up and take a romantic stroll around.

Definitely 100% return and recommend.

“Nice relaxing afternoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

Sent the afternoon there with my son. Thoroughly enjoyed the time there, with a good walk around the gorge and over the suspension bridge. My son was not keen on the cable car, so we didn't go on that. The cafe was well laid out and had good options available. Coffee was very nice.
