It's a short walking route in Wollumbin National Park that leads from Mount Warning Road, across Breakfast Creek to a lookout set in subtropical rainforest.

Surround yourself with the lush subtropical rainforest of World Heritage-listed Wollumbin National Park by taking a short hike on Lyrebird track. Experience this beautiful Gondwana Rainforest of Australia on this easy walking track that takes you across Breakfast Creek, then winds through palm forest to a scenic viewing platform.

A huge diversity of animals, birds and plants exist here and each plays an important role in the rainforest ecosystem. Leaves, branches, fruit and seeds constantly drop from the tree canopy to form leaf litter. This provides shelter and camouflage for many creatures on the forest floor such as frogs and ground birds. Fungi, insects and animals help to break the organic matter down, which the trees can then reabsorb as nutrients. Brush turkey can be seen foraging through this leaf litter for insects and seeds. They always have one eye on the job and another looking out for predators, because it doesn’t need to be a special occasion for carpet pythons to enjoy a turkey lunch.
