Rainforest walking track is a 0.6km, grade 1 circuit hike, located in the Robertson Nature Reserve, New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 30mins to complete.
Prepare yourself for a journey back in time as you enjoy a leisurely stroll along on this easy walking track.
Stroll along the wheelchair-friendly walking track and surround yourself with the dense rainforest that once covered the landscape around Robertson. Looking up at the sheer density of the vines, you can see why the Yarrawa Brush, as it it’s known, was so difficult to penetrate for early explorers.
If you’re keen on birdwatching, keep your binoculars handy and you might just spot Lewin’s honeyeaters, white-browed scrub hens, crimson rosellas, wonga pigeons or satin bowerbirds. You’re sure to at least hear the distinctive whip crack call of the eastern whipbird.
Look out for wombat burrows, and if you look really closely, you might even notice the delicate rainforest snails and other invertebrates picking their way through the ferns and mosses.
