The Turpentine track (formally "Magic Mile") has been here for years but only recently has been cleaned up and resurfaced by QPWS. It's a fun flowy trail with a couple of little but steep climbs. Once at the bottom you can jump onto the road to return or go down to the falls and make it a tough loop
