We have a delightful country cafe on site for refreshments before or after your walk. It is an easy walk on gravel paths but allow at least an hour to fully appreciate the sculptures. There is now an extra 1/2 hour Conservation Track where you will walk along streams, past a waterfall and through native bush, for the more adventurous amongst you. Children and the young at heart will enjoy exploring the interactive, Adventure Time area which contains giant pickup sticks and a Crashing Colossus of wooden blocks to stack and watch topple and fall.
