Native Grasses Hike, Bullock Hill Conservation Park

About the Walking Trail

This hike is a larger loop, combining the Heathland Hike and Eucalypt Hike. The hike traverses dense mallee eucalypt heathland, with an abundance of acacias, banksia, tea-tree and hakea, as well as open grasslands.

The trails in the park are not well marked – there are some markers, and the trails can be ambiguous sometimes. There are a couple of spots on this hike which might be confusing to follow:

  • In the central area of this hike, you enter a clearing, and there then seems to be multiple tracks and trails leading out. Take the trail to the north west, there is a marker here. You can also walk north east, following some trails which lead onto a long open ridge – there is a fire track here and it is easy and enjoyable enough to follow, and keep walking until you near the northern boundary fence.
  • Along the most northern section, walking west-east the trail can be tricky to follow, however the ground becomes more open to the west, and the fence here can guide you.
