Nature Reserve

WALKING TRAILS IN RESERVE – 3kms

LOOK DOWN FOR SNAKES  & LOOK UP & STRAIGHT AHEAD FOR SPIDERS

WEAR CLOSED IN SHOES & INSECT REPELLENT

  1. Top Billabong – this billabong is spring fed and always has water
  2. Baby Billabong – this billabong always seems to have water as well, although probably not spring fed
  3. Back fence boundary
  4. Back corner boundary – along this back track is where wild boars   have been spotted
  5. Swing tree – not sure of the purpose
  6. Bottom gate – if you continue straight ahead you will see bottom camping areas, 3 Arrows – you can follow the fence line all the way around and it will bring you back up towards the Office (about 1km)
  7. Mango Lodge gate – 60m to bottom billabong – look for old wood stove & laundry tubs from pioneering days
  8. Stick Henge – look through the trees and see where the trees have been cut to use as fence posts
  9. Rough track to Tea Tree forest – point of interest about 76m in look to left and see dirt mounds, these are remnants from the old days when there was a motorbike track out here – 119m in and there is a big fig tree
  10. Bench seat – you can continue from here as there are several rough tracks that take you out (HIGH MOZZIE AREA in summer)
  11. Turn off back onto original track back to campground

When you see holes in the ground that is from fresh-water yabbies.  Bigger holes are from Echidnas.  The groups of birds in the trees are Grey Crowned Babblers, they usually have a family of a dozen.  You will probably hear kangaroos jumping through the bush before you see them as they camouflage well.  The whole property is fenced, so you can’t get lost.  ENJOY
