Late arvo is my fave time to enjoy the sun setting from the western part of the trail.

I did this with my parents who are 86. They loved it. They were visiting from Southern Victoria. In the past, I've done Daves Creek with them up here. Dad also did some of the Caves Circuit - peering over the fence to the Coomera Gorge.

This is a nice, short rainforest walk. Crisp, clean air and shady in most spots. Great for people who have trouble walking long distances.

This walk was amazing, the awesomeness of the cave which currently contains a large bee hive is only surmounted by the views from the head just beyond the cave.
Currently a section of the walk is closed for bushfire recovery.

Really easy walk & a great one if you’ve got young children. Always lots of pademelons if your quiet & vigilant.

Did this walk accidentally. Took a wrong turning which brought me back to where I started haha. Was pleasant enough with information on the surrounding wildlife

A good self interpretive walk the details some of the native rainforest tree species present around you. A good easy walk to pass the time
