    Walks in the East Weyba section

    There are no formal walking tracks in the East Weyba section, but there are several kilometres of fire management tracks. Please walk only on the fire management tracks, do not walk off-track at any time as unexploded ammunition can be found in this area. During World War II, this area was a military training ground. The diverse heaths exhibit a kaleidoscope of colour in late winter and spring. This is a great spot for birdwatching so bring your binoculars.
