Rainforest Circuit

New South Wales

The circuit commences at the eastern end of The Crest car park. It passes the Allan Cunningham monument and is the beginning of an extensive track system on the northern side of Cunninghams Gap. The Fassifern Valley lookout is on the eastern part of the circuit and can be reached by climbing the stairs at the first track junction. The lookout provides a spectacular view over distinctive volcanic peaks, the Fassifern Valley and Lake Moogerah.

For an easier way round the circuit, turn left at the base of the stairs and walk the circuit in a clockwise direction.

Even though the traffic of the busy road can be heard a fair way in to this walk, it is a lovely short dose of rainforest walking to soothe any soul.

A quick and easy walk to get warmed up before tackling one of the longer trails.

Had a lovely walk with Tony Wells this morning. The air was so cool and clear. We saw wallabies and birds, flowers and ferns and much more. Could do it every morning. Just beautiful.

Enjoyable walk, looks very magical during the rainy weather (very misty). Watch out for leeches though, managed to have several land on me but was lucky to not have any attach.
