Amazing and beautiful structures, seemly built in the middle of nowhere!

Beautiful buildings!

You can spend all week wandering around the park and possibly not meet a soul.

Car parks have been built as have plenty of picnic areas. Gather your friends together, have a barbeque (as in the picture below) and have a ball! (Not sure though if barbecuing is allowed during the heat of a summer drought).

Plenty of picnic areas, and at certain times of year, even BBQ areas.

This walk would suit those that like to amble and those that like to scramble over the rough terrain.
