Great place for a day trip, amazing stars at night (watch out for the Roos and Wombats at night). Wonder bush walking tracks, great to go in the cold or warmer weather.

Great walk for those with a bit of stamina. Views from the top near the old observatory are wonderful. You are provided with a great perspective on man’s and nature’s relative architectural ability. Wear good shoes as the terrain can be a bit slippy.
