  • We spent the afternoon exploring this wonderful piece of nature in our 4x4. we were lucky enough to see a lyrebird and several goannas plus many birds. this is a healthy rain forest just on our doorstep. access for both 4x4 and 2 wheel drive. Gravel roads , a bit bumpy in places but if you take your time (why would you want to rush through this anyway?) any car or bike would be ok. Pack a picnic and some drinks and get in there to enjoy.
  • Beautiful scenery but the trail to Gap Creek Falls is blocked off by a fallen tree
