Go for a wander in the bush through Red Cedar loop and be rewarded with a grand finale. The scenic walking track leads you to the foot of a 48 metre red cedar tree. It’s a sight to behold and possibly 1,000 years old. Look for epiphytes growing on the bark, such as bird’s nest fern, orchid and staghorn.
Cedars often grow close to creek lines, which made them easy pickings for the early European settlers who used flooded creeks and rivers to float the logs down to waiting ships and saw mills. This particular one was lucky enough to not be too close to the water’s edge.
Enjoy bushwalking along the short and easy track with friends, family or take some time out alone to fully appreciate your surroundings. If Red Cedar loop whets your appetite for more walking then stretch your legs a little further to nearby Helmholtzia loop.
