  • I came to do the Warrie walk but the track was closed so I did the shorter Twin Falls walk. It is a very picturesque track. This would be a good walk for families. It's only 4 kms and an easy walk plu...  more »
  • First stop to wunburra lookout to view panoramic coast and pick up a map at the info point. Then Purling brook falls: 6km round trip for a majestic waterfall and a few others more modest, with ice in the last swim. ... The loop was closed because recent rains then return is a rise of markets (pretty easy). Do the morning for the Rainbow at the foot of the waterfall! Then take the car for canyon lookout. The Best of all lookout is a bit disappointing for the photos at the end of day (and it's 10 degrees less) but the forest is impressive. The detour for natural bridge is done (1 km easy loop).
