Lovely place to visit. It's a shame the park is run by a very outdated management who do nothing but create a multitude of barriers to access this park. They used to have a seasonal pass which you'd have to pay over the phone because...More

Beautiful scenery, rock pools, wild life, well maintained paths and signs. Lots of interesting look outs just off the main path. Can easily walk in less than the time shown on the website. We took just over 5 hrs and stopped lots on the way.

There are a few walks here, the views are lovely, there is wildlife and beautiful wild flowers. The numbat trail is very hilly so I'd recommend a good fitness level. Call ahead on a weekday to get a code to get in.

They have an outdated process - no payment gateway, you have to call up the sanctuary and pay over the phone prior to going there, then they'll email you the gate code. 1990s level management lol
