  • The discovery center has an excellent exhibit about the tablelands, their significance, and how they were formed. The staff were super helpful and helped me pick out the best hiking trail to meet my needs. There was a beautiful view from the observation deck. I recommend taking the time to stop and check it out.
  • The Tabletop Discovery Centre is a professional and interesting exhibit of the history of the Tabletop mountains. Staff is knowledgeable and friendly, quite capable of explaining the unique geology of mountains that contain rock from two ancient continents plus the sea that used to be between the continents. Absolutely worthwhile to visit this before hiking up the mountains.
