This is a well preserved forest within Sydney Metro. There are 3 walking trails and you can drive your car till the cafe. The cafe is quite decent. They also have an onsite nursery. Newer attraction is the Tree Tops Adventure. Defunately worth visiting.

Cumberland State Forest is a beautiful little piece of paradise in an urban setting. It is so peaceful and I just love walking there. Unfortunately they are thinking of building apartments close by which may spoil the tranquillity and the wonderful bird life.

Great on a hot day as its dense bush-land with very easy walking tracks. Dogs are welcome on a lead. There is a plant nursery along with a coffee shop with outside seating that is also dog friendly. Plenty of BBQ's and picnic spots. There...More
