One of the prettiest walking trails in the Byfield State Forest - the Bowenia Rainforest Circuit offers you the chance to stroll amongst ancient cycads and tall turpentine trees. You'll see glimpses of crystal clear creeks and be able to stop for a break at one of several recreation areas along the track. This 1.2 kilometre circuit begins at the Water Park Creek day-use area and will take you 30 minutes to complete. It's considered an easy grade.
