The Claypit Circuit begins and ends at the popular Claypit picnic area, which has two ephemeral ponds. Children can enjoy playing on stepping stones and the adjoining bush, and look for tadpoles in season. The trail, which has three sets of stairs, winds up and down hills and valleys. A part of the trail is shared with cyclists, who are expected to give way to walkers. The following interpretive signs will be installed on the walk this year (2022).

  • Dragon orchids: one of nature's sexy sirens
  • Bush tucker: a selection from the smorgasbord
  • Brown mallet aspecies: which prefers it's own company
  • Wandoo woodland: wide open and wonderful to walk through
  • Rock sheoak: and it's smaller dwarf cousin
  • Stealthy sundews: setting a sticky trap for insect soup

The flat to gently sloping bush around of the claypit is a good spot to look for orchids.
