About the Walking Trail
Experience a walk through some of the rich Mallee animal and plant habitat along the one-kilometre river frontage which comprises Wilabalangaloo.
Janet Reiners, the daughter of a significant early local photographer, donated the property to the National Trust in 1971 as a flora and fauna reserve. It was originally part of the large grazing property, Cobdogla Station. The name Wilabalangaloo is thought to be derived from an Aboriginal word meaning ‘the place of red, yellow and brown stones’, a link to the colours in the cliffs.
There are three trail options/links, each each commencing and finishing at the
trailhead near the carpark and homestead:
- Mallee Circuit (marked in red, 1.7km circuit)
- River Link (marked in blue, 820m one-way). Return on short section of Mallee Circuit then Lookout Spur is 1.5km)
- Lookout Spur (marked in green, 680m return)
The longest combination of these links is about 2.5 kms and will take about an hour.
