From the Gray Nomad Travel Diary
The paved Rainforest Walk at the junction of the Bemm and McKenzie rivers took us through a rainforest river valley, with markers along the way telling the story of the secrets of survival and the creatures the forest.
Reg and I heard the sounds of a lyrebird, mimicking other birds and twigs breaking. We saw many native birds in the scrub.
Today’s exercise consisted of hiking through two beautiful rain forest walks in the forests of south east Gippsland, carrying Indigo, our poodle for most of the way.
The swing bridges over the McKenzie River and through the gnarled trees added a different dimension to the rain forest experience. The steps gave me some additional exercise variety.
If you are and seeking a place to stay overnight nearby, I've been told it is about 30-minutes away from Cape Conran which has Banksia Bluff camp sites and cabins for hire.
We are in the region half way between Melbourne and Sydney now, near the Australian Capital Territory and many of the cars in the vicinity are ACT cars and those of international tourists and the car park was large enough to easily park our caravan.
The walk is a 1km loop and consists of a sealed pathway, boardwalks and two swing bridges over the picturesque McKenzie River, providing visitors with the opportunity to view the magnificent surrounding riparian forest within the canopy It will take about 45 minutes to complete at a relaxed pace.
Information boards along the walk provide information into the forest and the species it protects which help shape this significant area.
Not recommended for wheelchair access.
