  • It is brilliant what has been done beneath that magnificent monument, well worth a visit. The guide was a lovely bloke, full of interesting information about the initial construction. The massive black columns made from solid, 300 million yr old sedimentary rock. Go there.
  • Absolutely a place to put on your travel list. Very helpful staff. Give yourself a couple of hours to take it all in & a walk around the park. Will return when we go back to Melbourne.
