Cataract Gorge Reserve reviews
Underrated this place! We loved our visit here - the walks were great as well as the scenery - loved going on the sky rail - highly recommend more »
Although this gorge is indeed beautiful, it is a bit too Commercialised for more adventurous travelers. In my opinion, this attraction is more suitable for families. more »
What an amazing landmark. Could spend so much more time here, beautiful gardens and play equipment for children. The walks were easily down and the paths not as hard as you think. The chair life staff are super friendly and have so much information to share. It's a little surprising where it is located, it's right in the centre of town. Tip : pack a towel ! The pool looked amazing but we were prepared!
Beautiful and peaceful spot right near the city. Really enjoyed going for a walk around their track, seeing the wildlife (especially the peacock!) and lounging on their expansive grassy area. The swimming pool looks pretty awesome too. Something for everyone! 😍
