Must see stop while in Agnes Water. Highly recommend going near the end of the day so you see the shifting light in what is a magical piece of forest.

Very quick and easy but a lot of fun with a boardwalk and stepping stones etc. Did this one prior to our stay at Horizons Kangaroo sanctuary

OMG! Can't remember ever being in a Paperbark Forest. How spectacular. And the day I was there, it was being used as the backdrop for a couple's wedding photos after they were married on the beach at Agnes Water; watched both.
