Palm Creek Circuit
1.25 Hours  / 3.6 Kilometres



Description

The Palm Creek circuit at Ravensbourne National Park leaves the Buaraba Creek track and crosses Palm Creek-named after the piccabeen palms (Archontophoenix cunninghamiana) covering its steep banks. Look in the canopy for epiphytes growing on taller trees and birds feasting on palm tree fruits. A short side track leads along a eucalypt forest ridge to a small sandstone overhang.
