Licuala State Forest
Licuala State Forest boasts several enjoyable walking tracks. Enjoy the native wildlife of the area as you walk around the forest – the Ulysses butterfly, cassowaries and green tree frogs. Be sure to look upwards to enjoy the sunlight shining through the beautiful palm leaves – it’s truly remarkable! The Licuala Fan Palm is native to the area and has the majority of the fan palm trees in all of Australia.
Children are catered for in the forest – they can even follow cassowary footprints to a nest full of eggs on the children’s walk! Licuala State Forest is a beautiful place to appreciate the beauty of nature.
