Starting from the car park off Cedar Creek Road, this walk takes you to Cedar & Love Creek Falls and back via rock hopping along the same-titled creeks. Rather than a designated track, expect a peaceful but a bit tiring hike amidst the dense woodland. Although, you can take a break from the constant rock hopping and cool off in the refreshing cool waters almost anywhere along the creek. Whilst swimming, take a moment and observe the lovely scenery around you as you listen to the constant birdsong. Additionally, keep an eye out for monitor lizards and snakes. If you decide to hike alongside the creek rather than in it, keep in mind that the already-subtle walking track may be overgrown. A moderate level of fitness and shoes/boots with ankle support are recommended. 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
• Consider the impact of weather forecasts, park/track closures & fire dangers
• Can respond to emergencies & call for help at any point
• Are healthy and fit enough for this journey
If not, change plans and stay safe. It is okay to delay and ask people for help.
