  • Great facility for a pleasant family activity. Perhaps a little pricey for the length of time you would expect to spend there but definitely worthwhile if you are in the area. Absolutely brilliant views of the lovely bush, lake and mountains. Nice cafe too.
  • The food was delicious! They had a small area for kids to play in which was perfect for our toddlers. I expected the food to be on the pricier side but was a bit sticker shocked by the entry price for the tree top walk which was $32 NZD per adult. It was a pretty walk and had information stations throughout it which was nice, but I don’t know that it’s entirely worth the price.
