You’ll be amazed to discover that much of the area was cleared for dairy farming and, since the dam was built in 1959, much of it has been left to naturally regenerate.
Stop at the seat and let your ears and nose be your sensory explorers. Listen for the calls, whistles and songs of the birds. Hear the wind meandering through the canopy and the creek gently flowing over and around its boulders. Inhale the musty odours of the forest and the gentle fragrance of flowers, high in the canopy.
