Moderate track
Starting from the Bunyaville Picnic Area, Bunya, this walk takes you on a circuit in the southern woodland of Bunyaville Conservation Park, crossing Albany Creek twice along the way. You’ll be heading along well-maintained tracks that provide plenty of shade as you explore the peaceful forest around you. The shared-use trails are great for mountain biking as well. Notice the diversity of the Eucalyptus trees, and keep an eye out for koalas on top of them. The laughing kookaburras and pied currawongs can be heard throughout the track. The picnic area at the end can make for a tasty finish. Look out for snakes in warmer months, especially the mesmerizing carpet python. Be aware of the mountain bikers and try to make way for them. Come early to minimize the amount of riders and traffic noise. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
