Great toilet and rest stop
Nov 2021
Easy 30 minute walk through the rain forest. Lots of green and moss, just beautiful. Toilet facilities and a picnic table. Great place to stop and break up a drive.

Pretty

A moderate carpark with amenties access. The easy walk is a circuit loop through the ferns and forestry, to along the Franklin River and up to the underside of the bridge.

Its a worthwhile stop

Cleaning

The place needs good cleaning crew to clean up the mess left by hikers. It is disgusting to see beautiful place ruined by plastic.

Stunning easy walk
Feb 2020 • Couples
What a treasure. You could push a stroller or wheelchair with ease. Beautiful wide track, not one stair. Length was noted as between 25 - 45 minutes, it depends on how long you spend staring in wonder at the nature. Really loved this area. Beautiful place for a picnic, tables available. I'd love this walk at my back door it would encourage me to do it daily.

Easy walk in forest

This is a short 1km loop through the forest and passes by the river. It is easy and flat. There is a toilet and 2 picnic tables.

Two beautiful rivers and some giant trees
Jan 2020 • Family
It’s apparently about 1km around the loop. The track is built over the river in parts and the forest is stunningly green and moss covered with some giant Swamp Gums.

Amazingly Beautiful
Oct 2019
Just a short hike on a loop through a fern gully forest. So green and lush you will be amazed. The trail runs along the Franklin River then doubles back to the parking lot.
Total time of the walk is about ten minutes but you will want to stay longer.

Easy walk
Sep 2019
This walk is very easy circuit. A part of the walk follows the Franklin River. The sound of the river rushing is a wonderful thing to hear whilst walking through this stunningly beautiful and lush forest. There are toilets and a picnic table there.

Nice Leisurely Stroll
Apr 2019 • Couples
A beautiful easy short circular walk seeing different moss covered scenery and rivers. It’s nice and calming with the sounds of water constantly rushing by. It was very quiet and nice to just take a quick break from driving!

Loved this walk in the bush
Feb 2019 • Couples
We stopped off for this short walk in the Tassie bush - quiet, peaceful and beautiful. Well worth the stop to stretch the legs.
