I love Cumberland State Forest, especially after rains. The water soaked trees, the fragrance of drenched soil and the cheerful birdsong made for a perfect day out at this beautiful little gem in the center of Hills District.
There are quite a few entrances to the forest. The entrance off Oratava Avenue had its gates closed so if you want to reach the nice cafe by car inside the forest, then make sure you enter off the Cumberland Forest Way. I am sure Google won’t be wrong 😉
What do you think this bird is? Crimson Rosella or Red Parrot?
Some more pictures of the breathtaking flora and fauna.
There is a nursery inside the Forest. A great selection of all sorts of plants. And a very helpful staff.
