Victoria Forest Reserve where short walks will take your through three varying landscapes – rain forest, melaleuca forest and button grass plains which along with the single drop Ralph’s Falls provides a superb nature experience. Leaving Mt. Victoria we then journey to the tiered St. Columba Falls at Pyengana with lunch at the Farmgate Café. On the return journey we take a short walk in the Weldborough Pass myrtle forest and visit the old and disused Mt. Paris Dam site where nature is reclaiming the site with nostalgic flare.
