Strickland Falls and Cabbage Tree loop is a 3km, grade 3 Circuit hike located in Strickland State Forest New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 1 hrs 30 mins to complete.


This excellent loop walk combines the Strickland Falls and Cabbage Tree loop walks. The walk starts in the dry eucalypt forest around the Banksia Picnic Area and soon descends into lush green rainforest remnants filled with ferns and cabbage tree palms. The walk includes some great scenery along the base of the cliff line and around the falls although the falls themselves are often just a trickle. A great way to see some of the beautiful scenery of the Strickland State Forest.
