About this place
You'll find the Tree-In-The-Rock just 100m along a shaded walk, extending its roots down through a crevice. Karri and marri are the most dominant trees in this area, while karri hazel, karri wattle and tassel bush form part of the understorey. Australian Bluebell can be recognised by its small bell-like mauve flowers from October to February.
Take a steep walk to Hayward Peak and back from the picnic area.
