Things To Do at Twin Falls and the Hastings
One of the best things to do is go for a walk! We have several walking trails available depending on just how much walking you like to do!
Top Falls Walk
|Takes about 20 minutes one way. The most scenic track on the place! A couple of hills but negotiable for most people, can be walked in thongs if the track is dry. (and of course nothing else!!) Takes you into and through our Rainforest. The rainforest here has been classed as a warm temperate rainforest and has been identified to be of high conservation significance with over 80 species of plants identified along just the walking track!
Some plants are also of a tropical nature - however, no one seems to know their origins! (I suspect the birds might have dropped some little pre-fertilised seed packages!) Please stay on the walking trails and try not to damage any of the plantlife.
As the name suggests - the track takes you to what we call the Top Falls and the rockpool. Please be careful at the rockpool, as the rocks become rather slippery when wet or if you get your shoes wet. Rather pleasant after a long walk on a hot summers day!
Naturally the water flow over the falls is related to how much rain we have had or haven't had!...
|This walk gets rather vertical for about 200metres (you can go through the walk gate at the top, however you need to take clothing onto this road) and follow the track to the right and then becomes a pleasant walk along the top boundary track. Take a packed lunch! (And something to drink) Total distance from walk sign is 1.7km to both Boundary gates and then back again. (3.4km in total)
Please Note: You are not permitted to go off our property without clothing. There are signs on the boundary gates to let you know that you are leaving Twin Falls.
Little Ridge Walk
|Branches off along the Falls walk and parallels the Top Falls creek for a while and then branches off to the South and eventually stops at the east - west boundary fence. Fairly steep for a while...
Birds and Animals
|Check out the birdlife (especially early in the morning!) and the native animals. At Twin Falls we have many species of birds (we have 82 on our list) and animals that have been spotted...
