Flanked by stunning trees, this is a great place for a family stroll.

Start at Days Picnic Ground and head down through lush vegetation to Sanatorium Lake, which was originally made to supply water to a proposed sanatorium in the area. Nowadays, it provides a peaceful little spot to sit and watch as dragonflies zoom over the water in the sunshine, casting a hazy reflection on the surface. After taking it all in, continue downhill, keeping an eye out for koalas, kookaburras and cheeky rosellas as you pass under towering trees and by gently bobbing ferns. After popping out of the forest, you’ll come to the wide grassy spaces of Sanatorium Picnic Ground, where BBQs and picnic tables await.
