Styx River Walk

Easy track
Starting from the car park on Styx Road, this walk takes you on a stroll in Styx Conservation Area. The walk offers views of the river for the visitors and a chance to stroll through the eucalyptus woodland. The air is pure, and the greenery in the area is just relaxing. Isolate yourself from the world easily as you traverse between the trees. The path is flat, and there are only small obstacles. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
