Easy walk to a nice little beach! A little rocky! Kids spent the day swimming and jumping off the rocks. Great place when it is hot outside!

This park is a short hike in. It's so beautiful in the temperate rainforest. At the bridge are big pools in the river for swimming. It's a popular spot.

We love going here. It is a quiet place to stop for rest or a walkabout. So keep it to yourself and don't tell to many people. Heeheehee.

We were going out for a walk and found this gem of a place. We had no idea this place existed. It was a great walk and we will come explore here again soon.
