Upgrades included the installation of a discovery centre with an environmental interpretation space, education areas and conference facilities, and a fully refurbished cafe. There is also a gift shop with a variety of gifts including some by Aboriginal artists, and eco-friendly options such as keep cups.

Birdwatching is encouraged through the use of binoculars in a cushioned viewing area overlooking the creek.

Many of the old favourites are still present, with a native plant nursery running near the entrance to the centre, an extensive playground to the left of the centre, a bush tucker garden, and bush walking options that are friendly for people of all ages and abilities.

The Tallowwood Walk takes approximately 20 minutes return, and ends at a lake teaming with turtles, wild birds, and water dragons. The shorter Wildflower Walk is a 10 minute return loop.

Although the discovery centre and cafe open at 10am each day (except on public holidays), the nature walks are open at all times. Early morning visitors may be treated to the sight of wallabies. Koalas are present in the tree tops at all times, and staff often place signs beneath the trees to alert visitors when one has been sighted.
