Starting from the car park off Rushton Road, Martin, this walk takes you on a stroll through the Wandoo Woodland, following Ellis Brook. This is a fairly easy walk suitable for beginners in an area with lots of wild birds and plenty of shade. You can have a tranquil experience through the woodland as you traverse with Ellis Brook accompanying you. There are certain rocky places, so you might want to bring hiking shoes with ankle support for a better experience. Please adhere to the 'Dieback Protection Area' rules and use the Cleandown point (COE - Clean on Entry) accordingly. 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.
Before you start any bushwalk ensure you;
• Tell someone you trust where you are going and what to do if you are overdue
• Have adequate equipment, supplies, skills & knowledge for the whole journey
• Consider the impact of weather forecasts, park/track closures & fire dangers
• Can respond to emergencies & call for help at any point
• Are healthy and fit enough for this journey
