About the Walking Trail
3km loop, 1 hour 45 minutes
Wind your way past Old Government House and the State Flora Nursery, then stop for a rest at the Adventure Playground.
This gently sloping trail features natural and heritage sites. It passes majestic old red gums and blue gums, as well as endangered ecosystem of grey box woodland.
Find a quite spot along the trail to stand or sit quietly and watch some of Belair’s most beautiful birds. Nectar-feeding birds are attracted here almost all-year-round by various blossoming gums. The noisiest and most colourful species are lorikeets and rosellas. Wildflowers are prominent in spring in the bushland along Workanda Creek.
The wide gravelled surface is suitable for most abilities, and for strollers. There are numerous flat rocks scattered along the trail for suitable as seating rest spots.
The trail is wheelchair accessible, but people may need some assistance, as some sections of the trail are steep. It is recommended to start the walk from Old Government House and walk in an anti-clockwise direction.
