For those coming to view the forest and rainfall, there is a wheelchair and pram accessible boardwalk that is 500 metres long with viewing platforms that give access to stunning views. Walking trails have been created from two main entry points: The first is Lindsay Road via Harrys Lane, and the second is via Quorn Close, which runs off Lindsay Road at the top of Buderim.
