Great trail, was aiming to do the perimeter track but it got really boring. Much better to stay within the foliage with the around the lake track.

definitely do the guided walk. It opens a whole other world in terms of spotting and appreciating the wildlife, how the ecosystem interacts, and the human history of the area. if you go without a guide you can probably cover more area, but I would had found the hike itself a little monotonous had the guide not pointed out all the wildlife and provided explanations throughout

Follow the trail using the turbine trail, it runs along side of the fence to Zealandia. Nice view from the turbine and the track is ok, up & down - got a little lost at the top so returned the same way back.

Head for the high trails nearer the perimeter fence, under cover of trees, lots of birdlife, great views from upper dam
