Tea Tree Falls, Lyrebird and Robinsons Knob Loop
Starting from the Robinsons Knob car park near the Thungutti Campground off Point Lookout Road, Ebor, this walk takes you on a circuit within New England National Park via the Tea Tree Falls, Lyrebird and Robinsons Knob tracks. This moderately challenging loop winds its way through diverse environments in the northwestern section of New England National Park, including the World Heritage rainforest, offering stunning views along the way. The walk initially passes the Thungutti Campground and follows the Tea Tree Falls Walking Track, meandering through a eucalypt forest with an understorey of banksia and tea trees. After crossing the Styx River and passing a small waterfall, the walk heads through a patch of Antarctic beech draped in hanging moss, then passes Toms Cabin and descends steeply into Treefern Valley. The walk continues along the eastern section of the Lyrebird Walking Track, passing through prehistoric Gondwana rainforest with moss-covered trees and rocks, eventually reaching an intersection with the Robinson Knob Trail. From there, walkers can take optional side trips to Wrights Lookout and along the Cascades Walking Track before following the Robinsons Knob Trail back to the car park. This loop consists of wide and narrow fire tracks and walking trails, with uneven natural surfaces, compacted natural surfaces, boardwalk sections, creek crossings and steps, suitable for average fitness levels. 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.
