The walking track in Hallorans Hill Conservation Park can be walked in either direction. It is described here in the uphill direction.
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.

Picnic and day-use areas

The park at the summit has barbecues, toilets, tables, play equipment, walking track, views across the eastern tablelands and interpretive signs.

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.
