Just a short walk through a lovely rainforest. Tree ferns, very old large trees and a quiet place to have a stroll. Easy 1klm walk.

Did the boardwalk trail after recommendation by our motel. Well worth it. Cool on a hot day and a fantastic collection of eucalyptus trees and tree ferns. Only downside was my wife being bitten by several mosquitoes

Pretty easy rainforest walk through absolutely beautiful foliage. The walk takes 30~40 mins and has a little uphill and a little downhill. It wasn't difficult at all but suggest wearing closed shoes. Lovely bird calls and serenity as you explore.

This is a very short walk through a beautiful forest. It is around 1 kilometre with slight undulating walkway. Don't drive past as it's worth the walk.
