  • The most exciting part was the cable car we had seen & done everything in 2 hours. It’s really not worth the money. On top of that we paid for station car park pay to park for the whole day . It is...

  • Beautiful only downside is if you go in the sky lift and walk down all the sections you have to walk back up again to catch the lift back to the car park or walk further down a steep pathway to come out at the main road. Not for people with walking or back issues. But it is beautiful extremely tiring but still enjoyed it.
  • Went up the cable cars in the morning and had a wonder round at the top. There's some nice playgrounds for the kids (some require maintenance) and cafe/restaurants. We did a cave tour, although interesting, the kids got a bit restless. Definitely something to do while in the area.
