We were lucky to visit the National Park in Heritage Week . We took a respite from the rain and heard an interesting talk in the Audio Visual hall on the nearby megalithic site of Garraunbaun ridge. Later in the week we joined a group for a Nature Walk. This was a wonderful introduction to the terrain, the evolution of... More

This place is gorgeous. I would have walked a lot farther if I had brought water with me. I did get some beautiful pictures.

Great place to visit with young or old children. Needs to be a dry day and you will spend hours there. My 8 year old boy was well able to climb to the very top of the mountain unaided by me. When we gt to the top it was well worth the climb. The view is amazing.
