St Marys Pass State Reserve

Introduction

North-east of St Marys the Tasman Highway winds through spectacular forested country. At the top of the pass a parking area has been provided and a short 10 minute walk takes you through the forest to a viewing platform. From here you can appreciate the beauty of the falls and surrounding forest in the St Marys Pass State Reserve (360 ha).

The open forest, with a variety of understorey trees and shrubs, provides a habitat for a number of animals. Listen for birds and look for signs of wallabies and possums, such as scratches on trees, footprints in the mud or droppings.
