Perfect for the kids, this short and easy track takes in rare rainforests, gums, and grassy heathlands, making it excellent for wildlife and birdwatching.

Passing through dry rainforest, look for vines and orchids hanging from the trunks of the rose wood and flame trees. Listen for the soft call of the wonga pigeon and the iconic eastern whipbird.
