Starting from Minnamurra Rainforest Centre this return walk takes you across Minnamurra River to lookouts with views over Lyrebird Falls, Upper and Lower Minnamurra Falls. A well-built walk through an amazing rainforest. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
Before you start any bushwalk ensure you;
• Tell someone you trust where you are going and what to do if you are overdue
• Have adequate equipment, supplies, skills & knowledge for the whole journey
