  • Check out Green's Pool in William Bay National Park, which is famous for its turquoise and green waters, stunning white sandy beaches, which are edged by granite boulders. This area is perfect for swimming, snorkelling, relaxing or exploring the granite rocks.

  • Try the Valley of the Giants Tree Tops walk, a 600 metre long tree top walk that rises up to 38 metres above the forest where you can view the canopy of the magnificent tingle forest.
