What's special?Natural bushland at the southern end of the Conondale Range is protected in this small forest. Bellthorpe State Forest and Forest Reserve is quite rugged with open forest, rainforest, and waterfalls and cascades along picturesque Stony Creek. The rockpool is a popular cool retreat in summer.
Exploring BellthorpeHave a bush picnic or barbecue beside a rockpool at the junction of Stony and Branch Creeks. Toilets, picnic tables, drinking water and wood barbecues are provided. Firewood is supplied. Dogs on a leash are allowed in the picnic area.
Be careful exploring around the creek. Never jump or dive into the waterhole.
