    Mound Springs walk—700m one-way (allow 10 minutes) Grade: easy

    From the car park, walk through the gate and follow an old disused road for approximately 700m until you reach an information sign and view point. This track is open seasonally when conditions permit. Take in this unique landscape and spot the mound spring peaks protruding out of the grassy ground cover. Take extreme care not to walk on the sensitive mounds and adjacent wetlands. The mounds can be very dangerous as bogs are often not visible under the thin, dry crust.

    For your safety, and to protect the mound spring habitat please, keep to the marked track.

    There are no visitor facilities provided.
