Strickland State Forest (located at Somersby on the Central Coast) is a special place and a living exhibition of exceptionally diverse forest habitats including wildflowers and dry heath woodland in the north to tall eucalypts on its slopes through to lush rainforest in the south. The Forest has extensive easy walking tracks through varying forest types; past waterfalls, under cabbage tree palms and along creeks. We will be exploring 6 different walking trails and tracks each unique to itself which includes the Strickland Falls Trail, Cabbage Tree Trail, Stoney Creek Trail, Ridge To Rainforest Track, Bellbird Trail and the Arboretum Trail. This activity will be followed by a short drive to Mount Penang Gardens for afternoon tea. Own transport required and/or carpool from Hornsby Station.  When registering please provide your membership number and mobile phone number.
