Bourke's Luck Potholes is a must visit place. Beautiful scenery, with interesting rock formations and small waterfalls. You should spend there 1-2 hours.

The views of the falls are simply majestic. The water above the fall across the bridge is so clean and cool, you can actually put your feet in for a five-minute detox. I can't describe how beautiful this place is; it was my best scenery...More

Althought the road to Bourkes' potholes isnt great, the sceneries and nature when you get there is worth it. The natural "potholes" is quite a sight, and the streams flowing through to the potholes are also just as good. Lots of opportunities for beautiful photos...More

At least not if you're not planning on doing the long walk. The entry fee is quite high with 55pp and what nature offers here sure is beautiful. But does it justify the fee? Imo no

Sorry I never answered this before. Not sure about the opening days but it should be. Probably not Christmas day. The walk is manageable for stroller.
