Easy track
Starting from the Poimena Car park at the end of Sun Flats Road, Lottah, this quick loop takes you through the beautiful rainforest via the Goblin Forest Walk. This short, easy and wheelchair-friendly loop walk serves as an introduction to the mining history of the reserve through the use of interpretive signs. 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.
