Belair National Park

Sun 22 Aug 2021

8:30am - 12:30pm

Walk name/location
Belair National Park
Walk grade
Trail Starter
Description

A loop walk incorporating several of the shared use trails in the park.  We will pass through Echo Tunnel, so a torch or headlamp will be an advantage.  We will also view Upper and Lower Waterfalls, which have been spectacular during our wet winter. Old Government House and the State Flora Nursery are also on the intended route.  The route may be changed or shortened in the event of inclement weather.  Hazards include muddy tracks, slippery rocks when wet, and kamikaze cyclists (your leader almost had a collision with one while checking out the route). Walking poles will be an advantage, and good quality walking boots are necessary.  Koalas, kangaroos and even emus have been sighted on the route by the leader.  Birdlife is prolific.  The walk leader can be contacted on 0421 177 822 should it be necessary in the event of late arrival or illness on the day.  The walk will finish within 4 hours should all things go well on the day.
