Some of the great walks to experience at Blackbutt Reserve include the rainforest walk which entails 1.5kms of a diverse range of flora and fauna as you pass by a gully and natural creek. Forest Way walk of 1.6kms allows a unique view of the Reserve’s bushland by passing both dry and wet forests. Tall trees walk is a great family walk through the Richley picnic area formerly an underground coalmine.
