Forest walking track is a 1.5km, grade 3 one way hike, located in the Crowdy Bay National Park, New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 45mins to complete.

Hike Summary

Forest walking track explores the lush rainforest, woods and native grasses of Crowdy Bay National Park. This short track, on the western side of Indian Head, will delight all ages and shows why this coastal park is so special.
You'll pass through lush rainforest with glossy ferns. Listen for the distinct call of the green catbird and you might glimpse a bower bird among the foliage. Towering turpentines give way to she-oaks and three different types of banksias.
Winding down towards the creek, the path opens up to grasslands, including delicate ground orchids and rare kangaroo grass. In summer, gorgeous Christmas bells and wildflowers pop up through the dunes.
Begin this walk from either Indian Head or Diamond Head campgrounds. Retrace your steps or join Diamond Head loop and take in the sweeping ocean views.
