Easy track
Starting from the Cedar Creek Falls Road, this walk takes you to the Cedar Creek Falls via a paved track, visiting multiple swimming holes and a lookout as well. This undemanding walk is quite worthwhile considering the effort you put in. The refreshing waters of Cedar Creek will welcome you after a short but sweet hike. You can cool off and sunbake (Australian slang for sunbathe) here, then go back to the designated picnic/BBQ area for a delightful feast. If lucky, you can run into some cute little turtles in one of the rock pools. Keep in mind that the area is quite popular amongst the local youngsters, so come early if you don’t want to hang out with them. 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.
