Note well: we are walking this weekend out of the normal order

Saturday – Curnows Hut to Raeville: This is a diverse walk through native scrub, Bundaleer pine forest and farmland. The ridgetops and testing climbs reward walkers with spectacular panoramic views.

Sunday – Chlorinator to Curnows Hut: Passing Bundaleer Reservoir and the permanently flowing Bundaleer Creek, the Trail joins the Bundaleer northern intake channel at the aqueduct. After leaving the channels at the weir it follows Never Never Creek past remnant Yacca forests and grazing land towards Bundaleer Forest.

If you would like to register for only one of the walk days, PLEASE call the office to register after registrations are open
