The west trail is grown over but the bushlands is still a nice walk

Easy to follow trail except when trying to find the track to cross over and come back on the opposite side of the large dam, it was quite overgrown. Great spots for the dogs to have a swim

This was an easy trail once you get started. From the gate in is a bit sporadic till you get to the actual track Going clockwise is easier if you want to avoid inclines. The description mentions rainforest but where that was I’m not sure. The trail up the top end that tracks back almost on its self was confusing. We had to go back on a few spots as the tiny tracks were going thicker into the bush. We eventually found our way but next time I’ll leave that bit out especially during snake season. The ponds are really lovely to view. We sat down at a coupe of spots for short rest breaks. If the weather is warm make side you take plenty of water and a hat as in some places there is minimal shade if doing it in the middle of the day. We spotted a huge and I mean huge goanna, a wallaby and a kangaroo.

Very quiet walk, a few roos about. The walk takes you through the back of a few properties and a couple of ponds.

Really nice bush walk. So many animals around to look at. I’d be careful of snakes though.

it's okay not much to look at, zero koala's out, trails clean and clear just a little dull.

First to Review

A normal walk, similar to across the road at the Koala Bushland Reserve. Has a couple small lakes which is nice... walk past a couple of household properties along the way which reminds you how close the civilisation you really are.. a couple small hills but nothing to strenuous. I ventured off a few times off the path but basically stuck to the same trail as the main one on All Trails.. I walked further past the first small lake but really not worth it, nothing to see just added a little more distance to my walk...just stick to the main track.
