This rugged national park features open eucalypt forest, rainforest and cascades along picturesque Stony Creek. Remnants of Brandon’s Timber Sawmill can still be seen on West Bellthorpe Road. Branch Creek Road offers a moderately challenging and picturesque 4WD opportunity as it winds up through the middle of the park.
Although this is predominantly a 4wd and horse riding park , there’s nothing stopping you parking your car at a gate or side of road and walk to the destinations.

The lake was a littttle dry this time of year, but this didn't stop families coming in and exploring. Decent amount of cars in the parking lot. A good grassy area to set down a picnic blanket, people sunbathing, playing frisbee, sitting by the water and painting, etc.
