Starting from Mount Franklin Road, Brindabella, this walk takes you to the Bendora Arboretum and back via Chalet Road(a management road), visiting the historic Bendora Hut as well. Notice the change of smell as you walk through different tree sections in the arboretum as you enjoy the natural views and ambiance. 52 different tree species were planted in groups of 81 when the arboretum was first established in 1940. You can get into the details whilst exploring the arboretum as there are plenty of informative signposts at each section. Don’t miss out on the views over the valley while you’re focused on reading the said signposts. The historic Brenda Hut is there to welcome you to the arboretum, with some benches and a fireplace inside. Some people say that it was built in the early 1940s to serve as a shelter for the Forestry and Timber Bureau workers at the time. Others claim it was built in 1930 by Ted Kennedy for laborers building the road. The arboretum provides an entirely different experience in each season, from deciduous trees shedding their leaves to a silent white blanket over the land. Try to photograph each season to make them into a collage that you can proudly represent on your wall. Keep in mind there is no signal reception in the area, so make sure you inform others prior to the journey. 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 car park on Wayne Goss Drive, Berrinba, this walk takes you on a circuit in the Berrinba Wetlands Nature Refuge, visiting many lookouts and bird hides along the way. Expect a pleasant and refreshing stroll along a flat concrete track that is wheelchair friendly. As a plus, dogs are allowed on leash in the area, meaning you can bring the whole family and enjoy a peaceful picnic by the water. The lookouts along the way provide you with panoramic views of the area, and are quite popular among birdwatchers. You have a chance to spot heaps of bird species including the resident pelicans. Take your time and appreciate the varied scenery throughout your journey, and read the informative signposts to learn more about the flora and fauna of the area. Plenty of seats are provided for you to rest and eat. The track is mostly shaded, but some sunscreen and a hat won’t hurt. Although it’s not a demanding hike, it can be pretty hot and humid in warmer months. 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 Bibra Lake Reserve Carpark on Progress Drive, Bibra Lake, this walk takes you on a circuit around the perimeter of Bibra Lake. Bibra Lake Reserve is a great place for a range of outdoor activities, as there is a 6km cycle and walking path around the whole lake, with clear markings all the way round. The reserve has a thriving population of ducks, swamp hens, swans and many other birds. On the western side of the lake, a bird hide on a floating pontoon provides great bird watching opportunities in a tranquil setting. There is also a short jetty to walk along, which has nice views over the lake. Shaded picnic areas, barbecues, toilets and change rooms are available for those wanting to spend more time here. Drinking fountains and toilets can be found on both sides of the lake. There's a great adventure playground for the children, with features and designs that draw on local wildlife and fauna, and aboriginal heritage. There is also a food van parked near the playground selling various cuisines, drinks, ice cream and coffee. The cement path is suitable for wheelchairs and prams, due to it having mild slopes rather than steps. All of the facilities have been designed to be fully accessible to people with a disability. Dogs on a lead are welcome in the reserve, but are not permitted inside the fenced area of the playground. Some parts of the track are very close to the road, so make sure children and pets are supervised at all times. 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 carpark off Braunton Street, Bicton, this walk takes you along the Swan River past Bicton Baths and the Point Walter Sandbar. Situated in a tidal gorge and heavily influenced by ocean water inflow, Bicton Baths is a haven for biodiversity. A variety of marine creatures make their home here, taking advantage of the mixture of limestone and sandy features. The water here is crystal clear, so it's a beautiful spot for a swim and a picnic, and a great alternative to a day at the beach. Facilities at the adjacent park include barbecues, public toilets and a playground. There are riverside paths for much of the way, and once you pass the limestone cliffs of Blackwall Reach you can follow the foreshore, especially at low tide. There are some nice lookouts along the top of Blackwall Reach, a favorite spot for adventurous people to jump off into the river. Once you reach Point Walter, you can walk out on the sandbar if the tide is low. The sandbar extends about 1 kilometre into the river, and is a popular fishing spot. Be aware that parts of the sandbar are often submerged, and the drop into the water where boats cross and the bank ends can be quite deep. There's a café located on the Point Walter foreshore where you can enjoy a meal or beverage overlooking the river, before heading back the same way. 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.
