This walk in the Royal National Park combines two tracks, the Wallumarra Track and Forest Path, and takes in a variety of vegetation including heath, woodland, and finally subtropical rainforest. There are no sweeping vistas on offer but a satisfying enough walk nevertheless; the tall palms and rainforest scenery of the Forest Path are particularly attractive. This section can be done as a shortish circuit walk from the stone gates where Lady Carrington Drive meets Sir Bertram Stevens Drive.
We used track notes in A Day in the Bush. The Wallumarra Track starts at Sir Bertram Stevens Drive, passing at first through heath, then descends through woodland, crosses over Bola Creek a couple of times in rainforest, and finally meets up with Lady Carrington Drive (which is a wide track not open to vehicles). Turn right, then shortly afterwards turn left onto the Forest Path, and follow this until you curve around to the start of Lady Carrington Drive. Go back down the drive until you meet up again with the Wallumarra Track, and return back along this up the hill and back to the start. The Forest Path can have quite a few leeches in wet weather so perhaps wait a day or two after rain to do this walk. The Forest Path can be done from the start of Lady Carrington Drive as a shortish circuit walk.
