  • It’s a good idea to put sunscreen on before you set out and remember to take a hat and drinking water
  • Remember to take your binoculars if you want to birdwatch 

Boggy Creek walk is an easy, short walk that allows you to meander through the rainforest at your leisure between Minyon falls and Rummery Park campground in Whian Whian State Conservation Area.

The walk is a great one for the kids and is popular throughout the seasons. In the cooler months, it’s much quieter and you might even find you have the area all to yourself.

Along the way, you can relax by swimming in the many pools near the creek side section of the walk. This area is lovely; large turpentine trees, water gums and brushbox line the creek, as well as blackbutts and flooded gum.

Stop for lunch at Rummery Park campground or head back and take in the breathtaking views at Minyon Falls lookout, where Repentance Creek plunges over 100m, flowing down over enormous cliffs that were once part of the Tweek Volcano. If you still feel like walking, Minyon Falls walking track starts from Minyon Falls.
