Evercreech Forest Reserve is a beautiful natural reserve in north-east Tasmania where you can enjoy a picnic or barbecue in the shady canopy of the world's tallest white gums.
Called the 'white knights' by the locals, these Manna Gums stand over 90 metres tall and some are over 300 years old. A well-equipped walking track leads up to the trees.
In the reserve, you can also explore the short bushland walking tracks through forest and alongside the headwaters of the South Esk River. Apart from these spectacular trees, large ferns and mountain streams abound, many flowing dramatically over falls deep in the forest.
The reserve has undercover tables and chairs as well as outdoor seating and wood-fired BBQ's with wood supplied.
Also nearby are the Mathinna Falls Forest Reserve and the Griffin Camping Area. These north-east forest reserves are attractive spots to break your journey on the A4 between the Midland Highway and the east coast. To reach them, turn left on the B43 at Fingal towards Mathinna.
