Follow the signs north west from the village for Mapleton State Forest which is 11,000 ha of forest managed by the Department of Natural Resources. There are 3 short walks in the Forest. Pilularis Forest Walk is 400m through wet sclerophyll forests, with a lot of differnent ferns and shrubs decorating the forest floor on either side of the walking track.
Piccabeen Palm Groves is a 200m stroll in the refreshing coolness of a rainforest pocket. There are numerous picnic areas scattered throughout the forest.
Just 2klms north of the village of Montville is Kondalilla NP. First protected in 1906, the 327 hectare park derives its name from an Aboriginal word meaning rushing waters. The walks start in the picnic area west of the car park. Picnic Creek is a short 400m stroll from the picnic area.
The circuit is 2klm and the steps back up the hill from the Falls require a reasonable fitness level however, Kondalilla Falls, where Skene Creek drops 90m into a valley of rainforest is a spectacular sight and worth the effort.
The rock pool at the head of the falls is a nice place to cool off on a warm day. From the Falls there is an additional circuit of 2.7klms which leads you into the valley at the base of the waterfall.
