A luscious walk back in time to an oasis of mossy rocks, a waterfall and a deep history of coal mining in the Southern Highlands. This short walk ticks all the boxes as a lovely day out or a small adventure suitable for all.

Warning: The trail has a water element so it’s important to be cautious, especially with children. Be mindful of rainfall; heavy rains may cause an unsafe crossing and care should be taken near the waterfall and creek. The path may be a little rough in places so ensure you wear appropriate footwear. Read more bushwalking safety tips here.
