About Sandford Rocks Walk, Westonia
The Sandford Rocks Walk leaves the car park and shortly begins a gentle climb over the granite. An impressive natural amphitheatre is a highlight of the climb and the climb gets steeper before reaching a substantial cairn and trig point is at the peak. Descend the rock and walk a sandy trail through scrub and low woodland back to the car park.
The Sandford Rocks Nature Reserve has a diverse range of flora and fauna including Silver Mallee, black footed wallabies and the rare peacock beetle.
A short 100m side trail from the car park leads to a bird hide overlooking a small waterhole, with interpretive signs of the birds of the Sandford Rocks Nature Reserve.
