Hard track
This gentle walk is one for the wildflower enthusiasts. The area comes alive in springtime with masses of Gymea lilies, and you may also spy orchids and Christmas Bells in season. The fire trail can get muddy and is steep in places. Let us begin by acknowledging the Worimi people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
