Easy track
Starting from Pinnacle Road, Wellington Park, this return walk takes you to O'Gradys Falls, crossing Sandy Bay Rivulet along the way. Expect a compact but strong waterfall that's cascading down the dark rocks, surrounded by grand trees and heaps of greenery. As you make your way towards this gorgeous waterfall, you'll get views of Organ Pipes as well as a chance to see some rare bird species. Coming in summer means wildflowers of any colour all around you, but wintertime may be a healthier option due to the heat. Dogs are allowed on leash. 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.
