Mack Creek Hike, Para Wirra

About the Walking Trail

Follow the walking trail downstream along Mack Creek through a valley of magnificent river red gums. Look out for the beautiful orchids flowering in late winter and spring.

The return route is along the fire tracks that follow parallel to the nearby roads, and although less than 2km is parallel to a bitumen road. The fire tracks are shared trails with horse riders.

The hike could be extended by following part of the Horseplay Trail to the west.
