Moderate track
This short circuit in Budderoo National Park leads you along an elevated walkway, taking in the views of flora and fauna of the rainforest. You will enjoy the views from the suspension bridges and viewing platforms. There are plenty of signs you help you understand this amazing environment. The creeks are great to enjoy from a distance but there is no access to them. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
