Of course having a taste of the true wilderness is wonderful, but this short return walk was a waste of time when there are so many other beautiful walks to do nearby. Furthermore, the name is misleading, after having looked out for the creepy crawlies...More

Lovely walk to do with kids. Very quick but does involve climbing over some uneven ground and under some very low branches that stretch across the path. Very short, 20 mins return. The real Fangorn!

An informative walk through the forest, well sign posted and suitable for all ages of people with the ability to complete a 40 minute or so walk. Of appeal to children too.

An absolutely magnificent first hand experience with nature in a stunning rainforest setting. Anyone can do this walk and its up close and personal with the plants of the bush. It's simply just beautiful.

Interesting little walk through a pocket rainforest, much along narrow boardwalk weaving among the trees (you have to duck under or step over some trees growing across the pathway).

This little walk on the way back from the Gordon Dam was a little disappointing. It was beautiful and green and mossy but there are plenty of other great walks you could do instead.

The Creepy Crawly Nature Trail is a short, rainforest walk through some lovely growth and some creepy crawlies but not too many. Easy walk, smell the fresh air and enjoy the stretch.
