What a great place. We found it by chance and were blown away. Great set up perfect for a picnic or swim with the kids.

Highly recommend :)

Need to be fairly fit to tackle the uphill section. Lovely cafe/toilets at top of the Gorge. Outdoor swimming pool and a chair lift for amazing views over the gorge.

Chairlift was good, nice climb up the Zig Zag path but views were limited, walking along the pathway along gorge was lovely with peacocks and potoroos in abundance. Lovely place to visit.

While the grounds around the reserve are excellent and well worth a visit on their own, you must take the walk up to the old Duck Reach power station - views are incredible.
