Though it is mainly evergreen there are still lots of Autumn colours. Good walking tracks of varying lengths, all easy - mostly flat. Good mountain biking tracks separate from the walking ones. Very pleasant wander.

A short visit due to wet weather. Thick forest with tall trees. Interesting walks and creek crossings. Good photo opportunities.

The forest area is a really nice area to walk around with stunning views and scenery. The map we purchased from the i-Site was perhaps not quite up to scratch or my navigating has fallen down. Still a great place to walk around
