Paid $8ea for partner and I to walk the 1 hour walk. They should have some infor boards to give information about the craters at the lookouts. A good nice relaxing walk but the longer route was closed off.

A very easy track around the craters enabling the visitor to see a wide range of thermal activity. The entry fee was very reasonable

Great value for the price. Plenty of thermal activity to see. Nice view from the hilltop loop as well. Highlight was the large bubbling mud pools.

We spent an hour or so walking round and enjoyed seeing the hot pools. Not our first time visiting geothermal areas so we knew what to expect. Park was almost empty due to it being winter I guess which made it more enjoyable. Highly recommend.
