Travel inland from the coast, via St Marys, to visit Fingal. Pick up a map from the Information Centre when you arrive and explore the town on a self-guided walking tour of Fingal’s historic buildings. Then, pack a picnic lunch and visit the Evercreech Forest Reserve, where you’ll encounter the world’s tallest white gum trees—the 90-metre high White Knights—or take the 15-minute drive to Mathinna Falls—a collection of stunning cascades located a short walk from the car park.
An unmissable event on the Fingal calendar is the annual Fingal Valley Festival—a robust celebration of local traditions and history that attracts hundreds of visitors each year. Don’t miss the festival’s World Coal Shovelling Championships, and make sure you stick around for the wood chopping and roof bolting events too!
