Nice park with a cool river. It is well-maintained and clean. Lots of open grassy area as well as bushland. There are facilities to hire boats. Also barbecues are scattered throughout. Awesome winding roads for riding. Just watch out for cyclists and other pedestrians

We reserved the Commandment Rock picnic area for a birthday party. It has a huge undercover area with lots of benches and tables. There is a basic wood barbecue and no electricity so it’s better to bring all your food. The toilets are only about...More
