We had to stop for some geocaching duties. Kids were unimpressed as there was nothing for them to do, thankfully we had geocaching which made them have to read the info and listen to the audio in order to solve the puzzle

We visited in the morning and it was so peaceful with the sound of the birds in the trees. Truly an Australian sound. Nice to have a look around. The audio guide at the benches in the middle was very interesting. I feel there’s so...More

This is Banjo Paterson Park NOT Banjo PatTerson Park. Please remove the extraneous (erroneous) "T" to ensure the accuracy of your information.

nice setting for this park to honour arguably the greatest bush poet australia has produced. also check out suma dam if out this way. the emmaville cottage (thought to be banjos birthplace) is a lovingly restored cottage in town thats worth a look.

There is not much to see at the park - reasonable size paddock, few sculptures, couple of seats. It was rather disappointing until we discovered the audio-guide to this park.. So, we enjoyed beautiful moments of seating at the park and listening interesting information about...More

We came when it had been raining so the paddock was rather wet and squishy, it hadn't been mown in a while and there was rubbish strewn around from, we imagined, both the recent storms and prior inconsiderate visitors. There are three monuments, all of...More
