  • To be honest, i went in with my toddler on a Saturday morning whilst Mum was studying, not knowing what to expect at all. We both loved the experience, the setting and the ultra clean and well maintained facility. The Monument itself was truly impressive, and we even managed a kid friendly walking trail before setting down in the picnic area for some snacks and refreshments. He loved both the play areas, and was thrilled to have his first swing on a full sized, giant set of sturdy well positioned swings that gave him dreams of being an astronaut. All things considered, there's no better way to spend 40 bucks with a toddler and a picnic basket when you both just need to get some fresh air on a day off! Will be back soon for that Wood Fired Pizza!!😋
  • Very clean and tranquil surrounds, well sign posted and great exhibits, beautiful views of winelands. Restaurant on site also was not busy so we were served fast, food on offer well priced.
