Wow what a great place. Whether your into just going for a walk or picnic or more this place has it all. There is a little cafe , the chair lift was cheap and what a view! There is a free pool and plenty of spots from a picnic. Love the peacocks!

Just a 15 minute walk from the centre of town. Lovely walk through the gorge to the pools, tea house and lawns. Not spectacular in summer without full water flow but still well worth spending time wandering along the path.

We did a 50-minute guided boat tour that went up the Gorge and then come back. A beautiful sight so close to the city centre. Note that there is a walk-way on the northern side of the gorge that leads to a restaurant that the locals go to. We didn't do the walk but we could see it from the... More
