Went there with family and brought the dog as well, dog wasn't allowed on the tree top walk but was allowed to walk down to the river. Long and exhausting walk, with a nice cafe down and amazing views everywhere you go.

A lot of investment has gone in here, and it is a visit you absolute must make, even if you have to travel from a distance. The views from the platform are amazing.

We did the 16km loop hike on a warm summer Saturday in June, it was wonderful! The trail is well maintained/well marked, and is through the forest so it wasn't too hot; the hills are gentle and are achievable for most fitness levels. The view...More
