A very pleasant walk predominantly by the river. Very easy trail with virtually no gradient. Very well marked with orange triangles. Multiple bench seats and a bird hide.
I have walked this trail twice now; once last October and again today.
In October I walked from the cemetery to the town and today the reverse. The advantage of leaving from the town today was that the sun was behind me the whole way.
Right now there is a bit of water in the river but the vegetation is dry, October was wet and green. Quite well shaded. Both times there has been abundant bird life.
I think that it is a walk you could happily do on a monthly basis to see the change of the seasons.

Supported by great organisations

Trails are free and bring so many benefits to our community by providing opportunities to have fun, get fit, socialise, explore and challenge yourself. But they also have to be managed and maintained which only is made possible through terrific sponsors, donations and/or volunteering.
