Hike Summary

A very nice walk through a mixture of native (regrowth) forest and one of Australia's oldest arboretums. The arboretum has both native and exotic trees with the plantings dating from 1887-1924. This walk takes you along some of the rainforest-clad creeks of Strickland State Forest before crossing a small suspension bridge and looping through the arboretum with its stands of huge Hoop Pines Bunya Pines and others.
