    There is a short return walk from the carpark to the base of Baga. Please be aware, scrambling up the mountain's rocky scree slopes and cliffs is dangerous and not recommended—there is no defined track. People have become lost, fallen and been injured.

    Forest walk

    Grade 3

    Distance: 1.1km return

    Time: 30min

    Details: Stroll through open eucalypt forest to the base of Baga where dry rainforest grows on the damp lower slopes. Marvel at the geology of this 221m high trachyte plug or capture a photo of the hoop pine growing on the summit. This species of hoop pine, Araucaria cunninghamii, is believed to be a remnant of ancient vegetation from the Gondwanaland super-continent. Watch closely, and you may catch a glimpse of a rufous fantail flitting below the forest canopy.
