See magnificent Strangler Figs, Bangalow Palms and Helmholtzia Lily. You will walk to the plunge pool of the 100m Minyon Falls where you will enjoy your lunch (included in price) and have a swim (weather permitting) Moderate to hard walk includes some hills and clambering over rocks. BYO Level: Easy – moderate (includes walking up to 1 km at a time) water
Night: Night Vision Walk
Imagine exploring the Australian rainforest at night, searching for nocturnal wildlife without disturbing them with a torch? Arguably one of the best uses for military technology found to date. Use Night Vision Goggles to observe Australia’s nocturnal animals in their natural habitat, see a constellation of glow worms and after your walk enjoy a hot chocolate at the top of Minyon Falls gazing up at the starry night. Heaven! We usually see 5-15 animals, typically Possum, Pademelon, Bandicoot, Tawny Frogmouth and Frogs. Occasionally we see Koala and Owl. We get more animal sightings when there is less moonlight. Not recommended for people with epilepsy.
