Suitable for all ages, this short walk takes you through the lush rainforest to the spectacular views at Iluka Bluff, offering a fantastic way to see the vibrant life of the rainforest up close.
As you leave the township of Iluka, it’s extraordinary how quickly you’re transported back in time in this ancient rainforest ecosystem. It’s no wonder it’s part of the World Heritage-listed Gondwana rainforests. There’s another beautiful large strangler fig ahead, intertwined with ferns and vines as it reaches up towards the tall canopy overhead. If you walk quietly, you might see or hear the brightly coloured noisy pitta and the sharp crack of the whipbird.
After a leisurely stroll, you’ll arrive at Iluka Bluff Lookout with panoramic views and a great spot for picnicking and whale watching in the winter months. In the warmer months, why not have a swim or a snorkel by the beach before you head back to Iluka?
