Starting from the Contine Hill picnic area on Rosedale Road, Lol Gray State Forest, this walk takes visitors on a stroll, offering a chance to see wildlife with diverse vegetation. Dryandra Woodland is an international biodiversity area that includes more than 850 species of plants. The woodland of wandoo(heath), kwongan (shrublands(, mallee, sheoak thickets and plantations of brown mallet can be found in the area along with other species. Visitors can also spot red-tailed phascogale, woylie, western grey kangaroo, tammar wallaby, brushtail possum and echidnas. The area is historically important as well; two historical fire lookouts can be visited along the trail. The path is formed, and there are only gentle hilly sections. 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.
