In summer, what better place to relax than by a river? River walk, which can be joined at several places along Falls Road, connects Cypress-pine campground and Boonoo Boonoo Falls picnic area. Spring is also a great time along River walk, as the park is a haven for wildflowers including a variety of wattles, pea flowers and rock orchids.
The track takes you through dry eucalypt forest and vegetation in the riparian zone – the interface between the land and the waterway – a little way back from the river. Make the most of the two river visits by having a dip, a swim, or at the very least by splashing someone in your group.
If you’ve approached the river quietly, you may be lucky enough to spot a platypus. Around sunrise and sunset, wallabies and kangaroos might be seen grazing or drinking at the river.
