We went on a cool and wet November day. The drizzle was actually kind of nice through this beautiful walk. Green lush ferns, trickling streams and huge gum trees the kids can even stand inside. About 25-30 minutes is sufficient time to complete with toddlers. Our kids were kept interested the entire time. The track was wet but still firm... More

A great little walk, only took around 20 minutes and not hard at all. It's a well looked after walk and we also went at night and saw lots of glow worms.

You don't often get the opportunity to visit untouched, primary rain forest. Here's a chance to take a 20 minute circular walk through just that thing. A great experience.

Very unique environment in the middle of a tropical beach area. Many very large and unique trees and vegetation. Beautiful and well maintained trail.

This place is a must-see if you are visiting Apollo Bay. It takes about 30min drive from Apollo Bay town centre to the west. The boardwalk is easy to follow. You will be amazed by old trees, which some have holes under. Amazing view surrounding.
