Journey along one of three popular routes on offer—the Western escarpment forest drive, Mount Mee forest drive and Range Road forest drive.

Stop along the way to stretch your legs on a bushwalk at Falls lookout track or Mill rainforest walk, or to cool your feet in the tranquil waterholes at Rocky Hole track or Broadwater.

Stay overnight at Neurum Creek camping area or Archer camping area, accessible from the Mount Mee forest drive, and enjoy a chorus of frog song.
