The elevation of the park is low relative to the
surrounding topography thus affording some degree of shelter and
comfort. However while the site is reasonably protected from southerly
winds it is exposed to strong winds from the north to west quarter.
Being in a steep-sided gorge the area experiences longer than usual
periods of shade and cooler temperatures particularly in the winter
months. On calm summer days temperatures can be very warm within the
gorge. Generally the gorge landscape offers a range of micro climates
that adds to and enriches the attraction and diversity of the area.
