Easy flat walk. Good if you want to spot wildflowers. A short section of the track goes a long the road. It had been raining lately and there was a small creek running.

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.
