Winding between Jollys Lookout and Boombana, this longer walk explores a range of forest types.

Feel the temperature drop as you enter lush rainforest, with its beautiful canopy of huge strangler figs, hoop pines, lacebark trees and palms. Spot wompoo pigeons, rose-crowned fruit-doves, green catbirds, satin bowerbirds and pale-yellow robins. Red-necked pademelons can sometimes be seen hiding in the undergrowth.

Marvel as the scenery changes—pass by large tallowwood trees, stringybarks and bloodwoods, gradually moving into wet sclerophyll forest where majestic Sydney blue gums, brush-box trees and casuarinas grow.

Return along the same track or for a shorter walk, arrange for someone to drop you off at one end and pick you up at the other.

A short-walk option is the 1.5km Egernia circuit, which also starts at Jollys Lookout.
