This is a great walk. I went with my hiking group. It is mostly flat terrain with a waterfall at the end 3 hours return if you do it a little pacey slightly longer if less pacey.

Well, it was quite an experience! A big problem is that trails are not well marked in Australia, so getting lost seems to be quite easy. Also, an Australian’s idea of an easy hike is not necessarily what an American considers easy! We boarded a...More

Tremendous bird variety - over 70 species seen in a cool sunny/overcast day - along creeks, in scrubland and forested valleys and rises - from kingfishers to Little Eagle, songbirds and giant cockatoos.
