Sandstone Overhang

Ravensbourne National Park

Very well signed track that follows the Rainforst and Palm Creek circuits and ends at some sandy overhangs that people refer to as "caves"

Getting there

Park in the carpark (if you hit beutel lookout you've gone too far). Walk starts from the bottom of the picnic area.

Completed the buaraba track today and all side tracks. The creek was only just a trickle and the walk back up was hot so would recommend completing the walk earlier in the day. It was a lovely walk and the Gas Beutel lookout is a beautiful place to stop and have a picnic.

A fairly easy walk to the 'caves'. It was a nice spot to sit for morning tea.

Completed this one with the Buaraba Creek Trail, Rainforest & Palm Creek Circuits. Ended up being 8.5km in total. A lovely place to hike & a good track.

The overhang is really cool. There are two, so don't miss the second one.

Nice easy walk, turns out there's a 4WD track that takes you directly to the overhang. Sandstone overhang is quite pretty. Very popular on weekends.

Excellent rain forest habitat, coupled with some massive gum trees with some fallen down across the track.
