An easy walk through the subtropical rainforest near Sheepstation Creek campground, Palm Forest walking track follows a historic old logging track into the heart of the lush wilderness of Border Ranges National Park. The short track leads through forests of bangalow and piccabeen palms where you’ll feel the cool calm of the rainforest descend. The towering brush box in the tall forests that you’ll enter, are estimated to be hundreds of years old. If you’re into birdwatching, watch for the brightly coloured wompoo fruit-dove or the bell birds with their distinct call.
Passing booyong and strangler figs, you’ll hear the soothing tinkering of water before arriving at the picturesque Brushbox Falls. Be sure to look for the historic moss-covered carvings, on a sandstone rockface to the north of the creek, where cedar getters carved their names. If the waters are high enough, you can have a refreshing swim in the crystal clear waters and soak in the tranquility.
Pure joy as you wake to the sunrise. Awe as you make it to the snowy peak. A sense of adventure as you motor across red plains. The relief of rejuvenation as you wade into an alpine stream. Connection as you taste native, fragrant leaves. A sense of belonging as you return to your favourite holiday house. Freedom as you dash into the waves. Discover the endless feelings a visit to NSW can inspire.
