About the Walking Trail

Subject to flooding

The walking trail is subject to flooding in winter months, but less so than the Timber Creek Walk.

This hike follows an old fire access track which skirts the edge of Murray Lagoon. Walkers will not only discover a large range of birdlife but also a variety of vegetation communities. Bald Hill provides spectacular views overlooking Murray Lagoon and is an ideal spot to observe migratory waders as they feed from the lagoon below.
