Boardwalk rainforest walk. Ancient towering trees and some history. Easy parking and park area with gas bbq, shade and toilets. Great place to stop for lunch or morning/afternoon tea off the beaten track. Peaceful spot.

A nice quiet little spot just outside of Alstonville. They have picnic tables, toilets and bbq facilities as well as a beautiful 5 minute walk along the boardwalk. The boardwalk is flat and easy to walk along for visitors of all ages. I have visited...More
