“Forest walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

The information provided to visitors through the forest walk is excellent, also the website. I was with a group and had researched data to create a fun quiz, this went down very well.

“Great view of the glasshouse mountains”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

Certainly the highlight of the reserve was the view of the glasshouse mountains on the other side of the road. Spectacular unobstructed views with plenty of photo-ops. The rainforest is certainly worth a visit with excellent wildlife (we spotted a few shy wild wallabies) and huge trees forming canopies.
