Day 2: Miller Vale Creek Walk

A relaxing day spent exploring the nooks and crannies of Millar Vale Creek. Setting off after a hearty breakfast, your guide will introduce you to the rich local history of the area, which is believed to have been the original route for indigenous traders passing across the Great Dividing Range from inland Australia to the coast.
Throughout the day you’ll have the chance to learn more about the local flora and fauna, including koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, and a wide range of colourful and occasionally noisy birdlife. On your return to Canopy Eco Lodge you can enjoy a host of on-site activities, or simply wind down by the fireside.
