As you enter the idyllic forest clearing, you may see eastern grey kangaroos relaxing in the shade of the apple box and blackbutt. While waiting for the billy to boil, you’re likely to catch the aroma of the lemon scented tea tree or native mint that grows nearby. An ideal spot for birdwatching, look for the crimson rosellas and vibrant king parrots in surrounding trees. Lyrebirds are known to forage for snacks in these parts.
