This was definitely a trip worth remembering. We set out not knowing what to expect, and was welcomed by a very clean and pristine conservation area. It is absolutely clean and the visitor centre staff were just amazing.

Based on their website, there is an admission fee. It is $7 per adult. Car admission is $21 max. If there are 5 of you in the car, max will be $21 which the five of you can split.
