Wonderful walk in wonderful weather. We have never seen so many bellbirds anywhere else! Remarkable, and they were quite bold, so some great photos with some pretty ordinary camera gear

Great little walk in the rain. Worth the time. But watch the signs as there is a network of tracks in this area and a wrong turn will lead to a longer walk than you may have expected.

We only did the short loop tracks but can recommend these for a pleasant walk under one hour. Bird life is returning.

Super example of mainland species control, beautifully laid out track with informative display through the Honey Dew Forest. Tip: Take sandwiches and do the whole track!

It rained, we got bitten by sandflies, but we heard bellbirds + learned about honeydew. It was very beautiful and very peaceful.
