Easy track
Starting from POW Camp Car Park, Jarrahdale, this one-way walk takes you to on a journey through the dense forest via Munda Biddi Trail. The trail follows an old rail trail, a historical rail line used to reach the Balmoral POW Camp. There are shield trees carved with numbers through the walk that was used by the foresters in the 1920s as a reference system. The trail is primarily flat and lightly trafficked. However, There are certain dense sections of the track, and there can be some obstacles. The trail is also suitable for cycling. There is a section where the path goes through a private farm, and there are stiles provided for access. Although cyclists are advised to follow the Munda Biddi Trail, which takes a slightly steeper route. 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.
