Lost World is a beautiful lookout above Glenbrook Creek. It is not that easy to get to – either a hike down into the valley and up again from Springwood station and Martins Lookout, or a hike down into the valley and up again from Glenbrook station. The latter hike was what I did with my bike. The easiest access by bike is from Woodford station, down the Oaks Track and then turn-off onto St Helena Ridge Trail.

The road to Lost World along the St Helena Ridge track is a bit bumpy, turning into a narrow track which involves a bit of bush-bashing. The road from there back to Glenbrook involves hauling the bike over boulders and the like. In the valley is a beautiful water hole – Duck Hole. A nice swim is warranted, as it a jump into the water from the rope.
