  • Fantastic and must see attraction. Great bush walks and breaches for swimming. Likely won't have internet on your phone but small price to pay when you visit this national park - do yourself a favour - disconnect for a few days and enjoy nature!
  • This is the best place in Victoria. I visited many times. I would strongly recommend. It has got nice hiking and trails for all age groups. There colorful bird and plane beach. Well maintained by management. Many thanks to Victoria parks for that. It is beautiful long drive but worth it. Many thanks
