The walk follows over 1km of wooden board walks and bridges across streams and is entirely wheelchair friendly and ideal for the elderly wanting to visit the forest. There is a number of wooden benches and tables along the trail to sit, snack, picnic or enjoy your 'padkos'. Water and ablution facilities.

We were able to explore part of this beautiful area by walking in the Garden of Eden. We learned about different kinds of trees, moss and foliage in a gorgeous setting.

Garden of Eden was a nice walk and there were lots of beautiful birds to view. Overall, worth a visit if you are passing by but a bit disappointing compared to wildlife/bird viewing in the wild.

This walk is only good for wheelchair users otherwise its just not worth the effort of filling in the paperwork and dealing with grump staff who are unwilling to count out change. Skip.

Really pretty walk along wooden boardwalks under the massive yellow woods & forest. Not very long, but nice to take a picnic and explore.
