Great walk for the whole family. It offers changing scenery and excellent views. You may even see some wildlife. Be careful going after rain because the trail can get quite slippery.

I loved this walk. It combines rainforest with the dry forest and is simple stunning. Walking alongside the edge of the mountain range is beautiful. It can be slippery when wet.

A moderate walk, no steep parts. You start in rainforest, lots of fungi along the way. Around the halfway point it changes to woodland where you are rewarded with some spectacular views of the valley. Eventually you get back into rainforest. Its worth having a small detour to look at the Nagarigoon Falls. There are a number of streams along the trail, but you will not get your shoes wet. A little muddy in some places, but nothing to worry about.

HikingGreat!

some nice summer bush walking. Not too bad of an incline or decline so I would recommend to all ages! After the circuit we took a quick detour to Nagarigoon falls. https://youtu.be/H25JvnQJfAQ

Great trail, but was more like 13ks. 4hours with lots of stopping along the way to take snaps, have lunch and enjoy the scenery. Some of the track is uneven, rocky and tree roots so its a bit tricky in parts for those with weak ankles, otherwise it's a really easy to moderate track with only gradual inclines and declines. A lovely pretty track.

This circuit is a showcase of our native Australian flora. I absolutely LOVED the changes between the different habits and the incredible views of the numinbah valley. Relatively easy track that was pretty heavily trafficked (it is the start of the school holidays though!), no hiking poles required on this one..

It is an easy and nice walk with beautiful views, surprise rock has the best view, go all the way to the top and you have a 360’ view!

Track is open again. Little sign of fire damage. Best to do loop clockwise as the southern section is slippery hard clay which is easier going up hill. At the sign that says Daves Creek right, Ships Stern left - go left for a short way then right onto Dave's Creek circuit. Take the Tullawallal Loop track instead of the Boarder Track. It's less trafficked and a nicer, more interesting track.
