Check out the New England National Park which is right next door. The Tea Trees Falls Walk starts from the Thungutti Camping Area which is only a ten minute walk from Two Styx – out the front gate, over the Styx River and turn left onto Point Lookout Road. After you reach the New England National Park (there is a map in the information area) you turn left into Thungutti Camping Area. There is a brochure in the information folder with details on all the walks, including Lyrebird Walk, Robinson’s Knob Trail, Cliffs Trail, Cascades Walk and Eagle’s Nest Track. There are some great sights on the 360Ha property of Two Styx but none better than the Little Styx Creek which runs roughly along the northern and western boundary of the property. If you head off past the big shed and up and over the hill in a north-westerly direction you will reach the Little Styx after about 30 minutes.
