    Hallorans Hill walking track Grade: moderate

    Distance: 1.4km one way
    Time: allow about 40mins walking time
    Details: Walk this uphill track to experience eucalypt and endangered mabi forest protected by this conservation park. From the council park on Louise Street, the track follows Priors Creek towards the summit. Crossing Twelfth Avenue and Dalziel Avenue, the track traverses the crater before ending in the council park at the summit. From the summit, walkers need to arrange for vehicle transport, or return back along the track or through suburban streets. The track is steep in places. At the lower end of the walk, several offshoots from the main track lead to residential streets.

    Viewing wildlife

    For a small park, Hallorans Hill has a high diversity of animals, supported by the changes in vegetation along its length. Insects, amphibians, reptiles, mammals and birds abound in both the rainforest and eucalypt forest.
