Scary on the chair lift but beautiful and some great walks. Saw wallabies and got chased by birds. Good fun.

This was a total surprise for us. We never thought that this kind of place can be there in the middle of town. Highly recommended

This place is really pretty. The chair lift is definitely worth doing. There are peacocks that roam around and that in itself is worth seeing! There are a number of easy walks around the gorge that don't take very long and you can get nice...More

Agree with Kaijunjia. If you really want to hike, then Freycinet National park has plenty of varied walks for all fitness levels and great views too. The kayaking is absolutely worth it.

If you are keen to see young kangaroos ask your travel agent to look up zoos or animal reserves. Each state in Australia will have a number of options. The babies live inside a pouch on the mother Roos stomach.
