Description

This walk in Byfield State Forest passes over Freeman&##039;s Crossing and winds alongside Stony Creek through mature exotic pines with a heath understory featuring the Byfield Fern (Bowenia serrulata).

Picturesque recreation areas surrounded by rainforest-edged creeks, rugged mountains, pine plantations and ancient cycads are a highlight of a visit to Byfield State Forest.

Pockets of rainforest thrive in the range and along Waterpark Creek, a major stream supplying water to the Capricorn Coast. Natural rock pools provide a welcome relief for walkers during the hot summer months.
