Starting from Cypress-pine campground this fire-trail walk takes us through through dry eucalypt forest along Boonoo Boonoo River all the way to Boonoo Boonoo Falls picnic area. There are great swimming opportunities along the way and a side trip to Boonoo Boonoo Falls Lookout at the end. Let us begin by acknowledging the Jukembal people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
