We learnt a lot that was interesting during our tour of the forest. It was beautiful and relaxing and the perfect break from the city. Our guide Dean was very entertaining, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Given the chance we would definitely go back again.

My friends and I went for a jog. It was truly refreshing. It is also a great place for cycling, camping, having a picnic or hiking (mini). Organise a gadget detox and bring your family and friends to FRIM!

Sorry to say that the canopy walk has been closed since 30th June 2017. FRIM has decided to close it once and for all to allow the supporting trees to heal and regenerate.
