Free, fast easy walk, close to airport. We had some time before the plane took off so we went to see the Hole in the Rock.

A very short hike to the top, there is a path to follow. Great place to take photos without having to hike a long ways. I would recommend going early. There were quite a few people there when we were at the top so couldn’t...More

This was an easy walk, but I would recommend wearing tennis shoes. My mother and I walked up and enjoyed the sites. I would say it took about 20-30 minutes to go up, down, and enjoy the views. It is free with parking.

We stopped by here with our family group of 7 and we all loved it! Only about a 10 minute walk up for those with sure feet, it's a fun place to look around and take a few pictures of the views and the hole!...More

This is a short and easy hike almost anyone can do! Dogs are also allowed here. The hole is pretty cool and leads to a little area in the rock where you can sit and enjoy the views. And it’s free!

Firstly, just a couple of tips on getting there and walking to it. Head for the zoo and when you turn off N Galvin towards the car park, take the first left into Papago road and follow it around – you’ll see the small car...More

It is an easy hike but well worth it. You can conbine with the visit of the botanic garden and the zoo. Just make sure you use sunscreen...

Just a pit stop for a photo. However there are lots of spots in the park to have a peaceful picnic lunch

The Hole in the Rock is an interesting photo subject. I arrived at sunrise on a cool Sunday morning to avoid crowds, and to have a clear and uncluttered view through my lens. That turned out to be the right move, as I had the...More

Hi, this is a easy walk from the zoo to the hole in the rock. From there to the botanical garden it is recommended to take the short bus ride as taxi might be difficult that outside town. If you walk it will be 20 minutes.
