Nature. Art. Culture. Heritage.
The Gantry is one Tawny Trails creative inspiration locations. Find out what it is about nature and historical elements that motivate and excite a creative mind. It’s also a great picnic spot in a picturesque bush setting, and a significant historical site.
This little detour has some epic roadside views on your way. There are picnic tables, shelters, BBQ’s and toilets on site, and is easily accessible by two-wheel-drive vehicles.
Enjoy a delightful relaxing stroll through a beautiful mix of eucalypt and subtropical rainforest featuring Piccabeen palm groves and enormous, silver-coloured Sydney blue gums. The Piccabeen Walk is a one-kilometer loop usually taking 20-30 minutes. For those who would like to learn how to observe nature like a creative, be sure to listen to the video from the Tawny Trail map at the start of your walk
Look at the world through the eyes of an artist:
My first up close and personal experience with the Tawny Frog Mouth was here at the D’Aguilar National Park. The bird that inspired the Tawny Trails I found stunned by my headlights in the middle of the road, and carefully I moved him to the side.
A common bird in this area and Australia’s most comical nocturnal bird. Keep an eye out for the Tawny perched low on tree branches camouflaged as part of the tree during the day. A master of camouflage, its shaggy plumage blends in with rough bark when roosting.
