Fern Tree Gully, Rylstone – bushwalking

Fern Tree Gully, Rylstone – bushwalking

Ferntree Gully is a highly scenic rainforest area 17 kilometres north of Rylstone. There are several walking tracks at Ferntree Gully that take you down into the cool narrow fern-tree studded valley floor, and around the top edge of the rocks where you can get an overview of the entire valley. A loop walk takes you through unique plant communities ranging from western dry sclerophyll to lush rainforest in and around a deep and narrow gully of eroded sandstone rock.

Keep an eye out for a lyre bird, rare powerful owl, scrub turkey or a glossy black cockatoo. Echidnas, marsupial mice and several species of snake are also found here, along with grey kangaroos, wombats and wallabies.

Ferntee Gully is open all the time and is great for family day trips.





Testimonials

We were blown in by the strong winds so made a fire and stayed cosy for our short stay. We’ve loved exploring and building fires, enjoyed the quietness and generally had a lovely time as a family – with no technology to distract us from us! Yay!
