Milkshake Hills Forest and Lookout Walk
Starting from the Milkshake Hills car park at the end of the gravel side road off Milkshake Road, Milkshake Hills Regional Reserve, this walk takes you on a circuit along the Forest Walk and Lookout Walk. The reserve is found along Tarkine Drive and is home to two excellent walking trails, both starting in a lovely picnic area nestled in the rainforest, with electric BBQs, toilets, a shelter and a large car park. The shorter Forest Walk loops through the temperate rainforest that is recovering from a bushfire, following a combination of gravel trail and boardwalk. Branching off from the Forest Walk, the Lookout Walk traverses a short section of rainforest before coming to an opening and getting up a hill, following a gravel trail through buttongrass. While not overly steep, it's a steady incline to the top, but the trail is well-constructed and flat underfoot. On a clear day, the lookout offers panoramic views of the surrounding plains and mountain ranges, the Tarkine rainforest and the Milkshake Hills. 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.
