Hidden Valley Walk
Enjoy a leisurely stroll through native bush alongside a bubbling stream bed.
The Hidden Valley Walk is our best kept secret. Boardwalks lead you along the mostly flat terrain through lovely native bush. Listen for the calls of the resident birds who are prolific in the area.
Pack a picnic lunch and enjoy sitting amongst the redwoods where you might be joined by a cheeky Robin.
At night the walkway is transformed into a magical wonderland of a glow worm grotto.
Grade: Light. Time: ½ hour
Clothing: Bush walking footwear and clothing
