The Cascade Challenge (New in 2021)

The historic facade of the Cascade Brewery bids you farewell on your journey through the beautiful bushland of kunanyi’s foothills. The first waterfall beckons as the ascent up Myrtle Gully Track begins. It may be tough, but it’s impossible not to enjoy this otherworldly trail splattered with dense mossy trees, greener than green ferns, and criss-crossing timber bridges. Peaking above 700 metres elevation on Shoobridge Track, things get a little faster as you descend past the aptly named Octopus Tree. After greeting more dazzling waterfalls, the twists and turns of Tip Top Track finally spit you back into the lush confines of Cascade Gardens.
