Starting from Silverband Falls Car Park, Bellfield, this return walk takes you to Silverband Falls and back. This walk is a hidden gem for the families and elderly, as it is easy to traverse and relatively short. Additionally, it is one of the few still active falls during the summer months. You can observe the wildlife as you travel through the scenic forest, especially birds along with lovely flowers. The end of the walk rewards you with a majestic view of Silverband Falls, which flows into an underground source and looks mysterious. 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.
Before you start any bushwalk ensure you;
• Tell someone you trust where you are going and what to do if you are overdue
