Take a scenic drive or ride through towering trees and lush subtropical rainforest, to rocky escarpments with expansive views.

Rumble along one of three popular routes on offer—the Western escarpment forest drive, Mount Mee forest drive and Range Road forest drive.

Stop along the way for a bite to eat, to stretch your legs on a bushwalk at Falls lookout track or Mill rainforest walk, or to cool your feet in the tranquil waterholes at Rocky Hole track or Broadwater.

Stay overnight at Neurum Creek camping area or Archer camping area, accessible from the Mount Mee forest drive, and enjoy a chorus of frog song.

More detail about the 4WD and trail bike road network is provided in the Mount Mee forest trail and drive map.
