Rainforest Circuit

Maiala picnic area

This walking track starts at Maiala day-use area and winds through stunning subtropical rainforest. Appreciate the majestic beauty of the old Sydney blue gum, a sole survivor of the eucalypt forest that was once the dominant vegetation here. This track joins Cypress Grove and a section of Greenes Falls walking tracks. Parking is available at Maiala car park.

This is a great short walk in a beautiful location. It was just a shame that it was busy with lots of people that need to have loud conversations. We added Greenes Falls, Cypress Grove Track and the Westside Track to complete just over 10km.

We did this as a longer diversion when returning from Greenes Falls. It is a lovely walk and although it was very busy with a lot of walkers out, it's still well worth the visit. I think it would be amazing early in the morning on a quiet day.

We walked this track as part of the Greens Falls walk. It was almost dark by the time we got back because we started late but the track is very clear and easy to follow. This is a popular walk.
