This is 100% a must do.
We parked on the side close to the water instead of the car park. We didn't know it was a paid car park either so escaped paying parking so that was great.

The walk along the water on the footpath was great. It was slightly overcast that day and cold but the view was still gorgeous.

When we got it the reserve I was pleasantly surprised. So much work has gone into it.
There is a cable cart, people mover for those that can't walk up and down stairs, swimming pool, gas bbqs, cafe, bridge, animals, children's play area - just fab.

If going in summer and it gets hot enough the pool and area around it looks great.

If in winter, rug up and take a romantic stroll around.

Definitely 100% return and recommend.

Sent the afternoon there with my son. Thoroughly enjoyed the time there, with a good walk around the gorge and over the suspension bridge. My son was not keen on the cable car, so we didn't go on that. The cafe was well laid out and had good options available. Coffee was very nice.

Great park to visit. The bridge is very fun to walk across and must take the chair lift ride! In summer time there is an outdoor pool to enjoy too. Visit with the whole family!

It is a nice walk from the city center and is beautiful. We had a nice time and everyone we met on the path was friendly and fun.

You will not be forgiven for not going to this great outdoor spot. Just a short 5min drive from the city, this place is a calm natural sanctuary. Do not miss it!
