Irongate is a gorgeous little conservation block just outside of Pittsworth, and it is mainly surrounded by farm land. This was our second visit to the site, almost a year to the day after our first visit, and we found an abundance of birdlife.

Ravensbourne National Park consists mainly of rainforest with some sections of emerging eucalypt forest as well. This was our first group excursion into a rainforest area and it didn’t disappoint.
