There was a young boy at the information desk. He was extremely helpful. Before we even asked, he had answered all our questions and even gave us info we didnt even think of asking. He was so clear and helpful that it made our trip just that much better! So good!!! Probably just need another round of times on the timetable, finishing at like 6 or something. I know it would be a long day though so not too sure how that would work. Would mean we could do just a bit more ☺️ Otherwise, it was a perfect day, thank you!

Such a convenient way to get around. I had two issues: 1) the main office had given me a leaflet with walks which were temporarily closed, but the bus driver still suggested that walk. So, that was confusing. 2) the last bus at stop 26 was due to arrive at 4.48pm. I got there 5 minutes before and waited for around 15 minutes but the bus didnt turn up. Luckily, Leura station was 20 mins walk but I was absolutely shattered at that point.

Good method to discover this fantastic place, as well as to combine small walks around the mountains with small travels on the bus.
