A lovely place. A short walk with bird song. Somewhere apparently there are pigs. The bell birds are the attraction.

We had 30 minutes to kill so drove here, parked the car and wandered up the track through the bush and along the stream. It looked like you can camp here.

Walked a trail after recommendation. Was a great tramp in the real sense of the word. Crossed creeks, climbed muddy slopes and stumbled over rocks. Great fun

Fantastic forest covered walkway, through the native bush. Listen to the birds singing and the water trickling beside you. Up the hill you will find a fantastic view & rocks to climb. Views to the ocean and back over the valley side.
