  • Such a beautiful place. Would've spent more time here if my feet didn't hurt after walking around for 3 hours already! I love that this place is free and extremely well-kept. We went on a day where there was a watercolour painting event held at this community building attached to the library. Highly recommend!
  • Stopped by on the way down from the Mt Coot-Tha Lookout. We did an initial drive through but it looked like the main areas were under construction. We had a quick stop at the lookout by the quarry before stopping at the car park. Had a quick walk around the grounds which were quite nice, even with the construction. Stopped by one of the wedding venues so my nephew could have a little crawl around the area. Wasn't able to spend much time here but could see it being a nice place for a walk.
