This easy walk travels through scrub forest to a lookout platform boasting sweeping panoramas of the northern D'Aguilar Range and picturesque Neurum Valley.

Continue a further 80m to Bulls Falls where you'll be treated to beautiful vistas of sheltered rainforest pools and rocky crags.

Listen for bowerbirds, wompoo fruit-doves and yellow-tailed cockatoos that call this forest home. Take a pair of binoculars and see if you can spy wildlife along the walk.
