Horseplay Trail, Para Wirra

About the Walking Trail

Enjoy a 11km hike along shared-use fire tracks around and through the Mack Creek section of the park that is available for hikers and horse riders. Some maps refer to this trail as being 8.5km long, but a return walk along the entire route is actually 11km.

It may be more desirable for walkers to begin on the Mack Creek Hike from the Mack Creek Hike Carpark, and when reaching the Ruins Track (a fire track) follow the Horseplay Trail to the right, following most of the Horseplay Trail back to the carpark.

Begin the hike from either:
