Gifted by Bob Brown to Bush Heritage Australia in 1991, this reserve protects 105ha of myrtle beech rainforest, as well as dry and wet eucalypt forest. Among the native Australian species that can be found here are the spotted-tail quoll and the white goshawk.

Starting from the Lower Liffey Campground, the walk takes you through a variety of vegetation, from lush myrtle and sassafras rainforest to forests of straight and tall white gums. There are two river crossings on this walk that may be impassable after heavy rain.

Time:    1-1.5 hour circuit

Grade: 2: Suitable for most ages. The track has a hardened or compacted surface with uphill sections and sections of occasional steps.
