Along the drive you can visit the Sumac Lookout with its views of the Arthur River. Further on, the Julius River Forest Reserve has a half hour walk through cool temperate rainforest. At Lake Chisholm Forest Reserve a path through majestic old myrtle forests takes you to the flooded limestone sinkhole known as Lake Chisholm.
(The Milkshakes Hills Forest Reserve CLOSED DUE TO THE 2016 Fires) has both eucalypt forest and rainforest and the energetic are rewarded with great views of the countryside from the top of one of the ‘Milkshakes’. There are also great picnic areas at Kanunnah Bridge and Tayatea Bridge.
Located nearby is the Balfour Track Forest Reserve. The relatively flat walk is three hours return and was cut for packhorses and prospectors at the beginning of the century to access the largely abanded mining town of Balfour.
