Starting from Rotary Park on Bussell Highway, Margaret River, this walk takes you to 10 Mile Brook Dam and back via the 10 Mile Brook Trail. This is a pleasant 15km return walk along a shared-use trail that leads to 10 Mile Brook Dam, named after the tiny brook that was dammed in the mid-1990's to create a new supply of water for the quickly growing Margaret River and other townships. The walk starts at Rotary Park near ‘Old Kate’, a preserved steam engine at the northern edge of Margaret River. The trail follows one of the many old timber tramways in the area, meandering alongside the river with some wonderful views and scenery along the way. Keep a lookout out for the White-breasted Robin, Golden Whistler and other birds along the trail. This is also a great spot for seeing beautiful wildflowers in Spring. Upon reaching the dam, there's a nice picnic stop at Rusden Picnic Site before following the river back to Rotary Park. The picnic site has toilets, barbeque facilities and picnic tables. This is a moderately easy trail, suitable for most ages. The trail is a combination of compacted earth and coarse gravel, with a flat surface and little elevation change. The path is suitable for bicycles, prams, and possibly also for wheelchair users with assistance. There are summer and winter routes, so be sure to take the winter route during the wet months as the summer route gets very wet underfoot. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Starting from Yankee Hat Walking Track off Old Boboyan Road, Rendezvous Creek, this circuit walk takes you through the hills and valleys of Namadgi National Park, visiting 3 huts along the way: ACT Forests, Hospital Creek, and ‘Frank and Jacks’. The kangaroos and wallabies welcome you prior to entering the pine woodland of NNP. After merely meters into the woodland, the ACT Forests Hut is right there for you to explore. Built in 1966, the metal structure is equipped with a rainwater tank. The next hut you’ll visit is the Hospital Creek Hut(3.48km return side trip), which can be considered the highlight of the walk. Located near the aptly named creek, the hut sits amidst prolific gum trees which are full of birds. Also built in 1966, it’s made of sawn timber and bush poles, covered with iron. Plus, it still contains an original kerosene fridge inside. Frank and Jacks Hut is the last hut on the journey(1.42km return side trip), also known as Franks Hut, or Franks in the Pines. Built in 1954 by Cecil Hopkins of Queanbeyan for Frank and Jack Oldfield, the hut has 3 rooms with timber floors and a brick fireplace. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Walk

Starting from Lamington National Park Road, O’Reilly, this circuit walk takes you deep into the lush rainforests of Lamington park, navigating partly along Albert River and visiting multiple waterfalls and lookouts. Expect to be amazed by the stunning view of the waterfalls and the interchanging vegetation throughout the track. Although the track is roughly 20 kilometres long, it may not feel like it as the tracks are gentle and undulating. When you’re near water, keep an eye out for the native Lamington crayfish, also known as the blue spiny crayfish due to its vibrant blue coloured shell. Other wildlife you can run into in the area are king parrots and dingoes. You’ll be going through some ancient Antarctic Beech trees along with other interesting rainforest plant species. The Echo Point camp site midway is meters away from the same-titled lookout, where you can get exceptional panoramic views to the south. During the day, you’ll be able to see many mountains and hills including Mount Warning, whereas the night offers you an exceptional opportunity for stargazing. Decent(preferably waterproof) hiking boots and gaiters are recommended against the muddy and leechy conditions. Keep an eye out for snakes. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
