We visited as part of an organised tour, but you can just as simply walk round on your own. you will not get lost i assure you, as the path is very easy to follow. Parking is free and plentifull.

The walk we did at Maits Rest was amazing. So many different trees and information was really good to read. Definitely recommended to people who love bush walks
