More adventurous and active visitors will find another world high above the Gardens.
Just behind the Gardens is the Mt Whitfield Conservation Park - over 300 hectares of forested mountain range. Reaching an elevation of 365 metres above sea level, the Park offers many opportunities for nature-based recreation and educational activities along its two major walking tracks - the Red and Blue Arrow circuits.
The vegetation is rainforest with patches of eucalyptus and grasslands. There is only limited recruitment of plants and animals and this makes the Park a very valuable and delicate resource.
