Description

This return track gradually descends through bushland to the cool, fern lined gully beneath delightful Snug Falls. Keep a look out for native orchids during spring and summer. In winter, eastern spinebills frequent the area, feeding on the pink and white flowering heath. The sweet nectar of silver banksia flowers attract crescent and yellow throated honeyeaters, and green rosellas. You might also see strong-billed honeyeaters hopping their way up eucalypt trunks, picking at insects. Once down on the valley floor, look for the beautiful pink robin which feeds amongst the leaf litter of wet forests. The falls are particularly impressive after heavy rain, and in summer, it’s a great place to paddle in the shallows on a warm day.
