Cathedral Ranges offers many levels of bush walking/hiking with some of the best mountain views over looking the Great Dividing Range. A packed picnic lunch and drinks are a must to sit and enjoy anyone of the numerous view points along the ridge line.

I walked up the paths to FarmYard and back to the camping ground; well sign posted with lots of steps but all manageable. Very peaceful, amazing diversity of flora and also saw some wildlife on the way. Will do this again!

Beautiful shady walks and stunning views. Lots of wildlife to look on evening drives when we couldn't get the kids to sleep!

Been up the Cathedrals a couple times. Absolute ripper views and the tracks vary from easy and hard. Defiantly would recommend doing a walk
