Short drive off the highway, about 7 kms. Last part is on gravel road, but OK for normal cars. Large bolder formation that you can explore with a great viewing platform on top. Not suitable for disabled, as the last part is via steep stairs....More

Wear appropriate footwear. The rocks are slippery when wet. I recommend taking a picnic lunch, and food for a BBQ

Donnelly's Castle is a great place to visit with kids. You can climb on and through enormous boulders. The kids pretended to be bushrangers searching for the perfect hideout.

Its not a castle, but large granite boulders with caves and overhangs that would have made a great home to the ancients! Its a bit of a drive on gravel road to get there, but well worth a visit.

This was an interesting stop off the beaten track. Some dirt road to travel on, take it easy and you will be fine. Make sure you go up onto the lookout as you can see for miles. There were only a couple of other people...More
