Most tourists visit the park for the gloucester tree - a fire lookout turned into a tourist attraction...and miss out the real gem - the numerous walking trails of varying distances that take you through the heart of the forest. There's even a trail -...More

Well done, National Park Service of Australia: beautifully marked trails, clean, lovely forest, clean and ample parking areas. Magnificent woods! The big tree with the steel ladder steps seems a tourist gimmick to me - like those stupid glass bridges in other parts of the...More

Out for a day drive and stopped here. River was in full flow just like the picture. Nice and relaxing spot for a picnic. Just the sound of water and nature to listen too.
