At the vibrant Gallery Walk two hours are allowed for spending time browsing or shopping. Locally made arts and crafts such as paintings and sculptures, jewellery, and clothing are for sale at the variety of sixty shops. As well there are cafes and restaurants, cheeses and cheese tasting at the Witches Chase Cheese factory. The brewery at Gallery Walk is an ideal place for stopping and having a refreshing beer.
At the Skywalk, walk over treetops and take in the lush forest, experience the sounds of wildlife, tinkling streams and rock pools while ambling along under a canopy high above the ground.
For the glow worm tour at Cedar Creek, you enter two big manmade caves. At the first view an audiovisual display of the cave construction and learn about glowworms. The second cave is lit up by masses of the little glowworms resembling fairy lights. This magical sight should not be missed and certainly worth going to explore.
A separate Nighttime Tour of the Glowworms is available from Southern Cross tours as well.
