Hundreds of thousands of visitors flock to these areas each year, to enjoy horse riding, bushwalking, mountain biking, camping and community forest events.

Forest hut accommodation is also available too book outside of fire season, at ForestrySA’s Rocky Creek Hut, Woodcutter’s Cottage and Tinjella Hut.

For more information about the recreational opportunities available or to book your forest stay please visit our website.

For safety reasons, the forest is closed to the public on declared Total Fire Ban days.
