Starting from the Flints car park off Tidbinbilla Reserve Road, Paddys River, this walk crosses Tidbinbilla River, Ashbrook Creek and Mountain Creek via the Ashbrook Fire Trail, then heads back to the start. Explore the mixed Eucalypt woodland as you enjoy a little bit of Aboriginal history. You’ll visit 2 scar(red) trees near the track, which have their bark removed in the shape of a shield. The Aboriginal people used these barks to make canoes, traps and shelters as well. Fellow (kanga)roos can be spotted throughout the journey, with a chance to see some interesting birdlife near the ponds and creeks. Enjoy this stroll in nature as the singular wide fire trail lets you focus on your surroundings. Although, take care on the crossings as the water level can reach ankle-height in colder months. Thus, waterproof shoes may come in handy. Keep in mind that the Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve requires a pass, which can be acquired daily or annual. This journey can be made into a one-way trip if you arrange transport. You can also reverse the direction if you’d like to. 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 the Serpentine National Park day use area on Falls Road, Serpentine, this walk takes you to the summit of Baldwin's Bluff and back via the Baldwin's Bluff Trail. Nestled in the heart of Serpentine National Park, Baldwin's Bluff is a hidden gem. Throughout the walk you will pass through jarrah and marri woodlands, eventually transitioning to wandoo woodlands and then finally over exposed granite. The trail is particularly lovely in early Spring, with beautiful wildflowers in bloom. The trail rises up a moderately steep incline as it follows the laterite vehicle track up Baldwin's Bluff. Just before the summit, the trail passes by a lookout point that offers walkers a spectacular view of the Perth Coastal Plain, Serpentine Falls and the valley beyond. The summit is not clearly marked, but is recognisable due to the expansive granite protrusions. Beyond the summit, the trail fades out after providing walkers a view of the farmland and suburbia located just beyond the park boundaries. From there, it is a simple matter of retracing your steps back to the start of the walk. The hike starts with a steep climb, requiring a reasonable level of fitness. Although the terrain is uneven at times, the ascent is not overly difficult. Take care on the way back down, as the loose gravel and rocky sections can be slippery. Facilities at the Serpentine National Park day use area include barbecues, picnic tables and public toilets. 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.
