Easy access N suitable for all ages. The trail is easy and suitable for family with children or elderly. The tree top adventure looks great. I spend 30 minutes watching. A must for Teenager!

Lovely clean grounds and beautiful tracks. love how most are pet-friendly and generally how well things are kept though. there is a cafe but they serve unusual things; you wouldn't get a bowl of chips, so I recommend packing sandwiches and buying a coffee instead.

This is a well preserved forest within Sydney Metro. There are 3 walking trails and you can drive your car till the cafe. The cafe is quite decent. They also have an onsite nursery. Newer attraction is the Tree Tops Adventure. Defunately worth visiting.

Cumberland State Forest is a beautiful little piece of paradise in an urban setting. It is so peaceful and I just love walking there. Unfortunately they are thinking of building apartments close by which may spoil the tranquillity and the wonderful bird life.
