This trail makes the most of the natural wonders of the park; the hidden gorge with its rock faces and tumbled boulders, the cool rainforest and softly running water, are the perfect accompaniment for this tranquil walk.
Setting out from Bomaderry Creek picnic area you will wander beneath rock overhangs, stride out on the heath, enjoy the wildflowers and keep an eye out for orchids sprouting from the rock crevices. You’ll enjoy the birdlife and be sure to watch the creek for fish as they dart through the rock pools.
