Walk | A bushwalk of any kind short or longSlow pace | A trip where the leader will set an easy pace.(NEW!!!) Commencing at Kisses Lagoon, this is an attractive river walk via the Bega River Reserve. The Reserve itself covers an area of 8.5 ha, with the river and anabranch being home to water dragons, turtles and a variety of birds. Once overrun with environmental weeds, it has now been cleared and replanted with native grasses, shrubs and trees, thanks largely to the work of Bega River and Wetlands Landcare (BRAWL) Easy walking on concrete and gravel paths.

Along the way you can expect some stunning swimming pools and patches of rainforest along with gorgeous views along the ridge that leads down to the creek. Rock scrambling and off-track walking.

Why would you want to do this you may well ask! Well, for starter,s you'll see an incredible display of glowworms that make the Glowworm Tunnel pale into insignificance. If lucky, you may also see glider possums, frogs, crayfish, bats and other denizens of the night. The one thing you won't see is the usual crowds that frequent the Grand Canyon in the daytime. Last time I did this walk we only encountered a couple of people. Bring a torch.
