This trail runs from the Visitor Centre to Fairy Creek Waterfall. The trail is rated as "easy" but has a few gentle ups and downs. It is well signposted.

This is a beautiful hike along the creek all the way to the waterfall through the forest. Plenty of opportunities to get down to the water's edge and ending at the beautiful Fairy Creek Waterfall. You can get right to the base of the falls and even to check out the top.
