Howard Springs Nature Park Reviews
Loved this. First visited thirty years ago and the facilities have been improved over the years. Lovely setting for a birthday party. more »
Lovely place to relax, take a leisurely strong through the forest and also see some large Barra and turtles in the wild. Swimming no longer permitted but there are a number of made rockpools to cool..... more »
Short stop on a bus tour to feed the fish. Water was clear and the fish and turtles were active. Good activity and swimming area for children.
What a beautiful place to explore & cool off in the heat. Beautifully maintained & great for young children
