Great experience with my 8 yr old grandson.

Great place to take the family, lots of walking tracks for different levels of fitness. Can go on the chairlift one way or return. Reasonably priced.

Yup, at least a 12 hour visit, or 2 days would be better. Stunning scenery, stunning facilities, great guided walks, great snacks or picnic areas, great close ups with local wildlife.
