About the neighborhood
The area now is mostly lifestyle blocks. In the early 1900's there were bush camps where the gum diggers lived and worked. Further up the valley is the Department of Conservation Centre where you can gain information about the history of the valley. There are bush walks, including the most popular to the Pinnacles.
Getting around
A vehicle is needed.
