Julius River Rainforest and Sinkhole Walk
Starting from the Julius River Forest Reserve car park off Sumac Road, Trowutta, this walk takes you on a circuit along the Rainforest Walk and the Sinkhole Walk. Julius River is a beautiful reserve set in sinkhole country, home to two short and easy loop walks, with some of the best amenities found along Tarkine Drive. Both walks start from the picnic area, which has toilets, barbecues and tables, making it a great place to stop for a break. The shorter Rainforest Walk follows a decked boardwalk through temperate rainforest alongside the river, accompanied by the sounds of birds and babbling brooks, passing two viewing platforms and crossing a bridge along the way. The Sinkhole Walk meanders through the lush mossy rainforest with an abundance of fungi, myrtles, leatherwoods, sassafras and ferns, passing a limestone sinkhole before looping back to the car park. Camping is permitted here, with plenty of space for tents, and the RV campground is located 600 metres up the road, with space for campervans, caravans or motorhomes. 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.
