↓ -49 m

Moderate track
Starting from Gibbergunyah Range Road this circuit walk first takes you through shallow water across a causeway (the crossing can become impassable after or during heavy rainfall). Continue the walk through the subtropical rainforest of Nightcap National Park past giant fig trees and giant stinging trees for some excellent birdwatching opportunities. Let us begin by acknowledging the Bundjalung people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
