This was only partly a bushwalk as the main reason for going was to check on Broom, an invasive weed. Two years have passed since the Friends of Wellington Park last checked the area by the Mountain River Trail (between Mountain River and Trestle Mountain). On inspection of the site a significant volume of small Broom was discovered, plus a few larger bushes that had escaped notice last time.
After getting out all that were found, we returned and, on the way, detoured to Trestle Falls. Some tape was spotted and helped in getting there. Trestle Falls were good most scenic and well worth the visit. We scrambled down the final steep bank to arrive between two falls, the larger upstream with attractive cascades before the final drop.
From the Mountain River Track, it took about 30 minutes each way to the falls and back.
