Palms circuit track is a 0.75km, grade 4 circuit hike, located in the Munmorah State Conservation Area, New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 45mins to complete.

Hike Summary

Re-energise under a canopy of cabbage tree palms on this meandering, short loop through the rainforest of Munmorah.
You'll feel revived in the cool forest air surrounded by lush vegetation with shafts of sunlight streaming through palm fronds to guide your way. This enchanting walk is a visual feast, and isn't too challenging on the legs either. Look carefully and you may even spot some grey-headed flying foxes that feed in the cabbage tree palm forest during the summer.
Bring along supplies and take advantage of the tables at Palms picnic area, where the track begins and loops back to.
