Starting from the car park on Huon Road, Wellington Park, this walk takes you on a circuit around a part of Dunns Creek via the Fern Glade, Silver Falls and Pillinger Drive tracks. With grand tree ferns above you providing shade and the relaxing sound of water, the first part of the walk is quite the sensory pleaser. Then you'll dive into a wet forest as you make your way along the Silver Falls Track. Lastly, the Pillinger Drive Track will take you back to the start. 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.
Before you start any bushwalk ensure you;
• Tell someone you trust where you are going and what to do if you are overdue
• Have adequate equipment, supplies, skills & knowledge for the whole journey
• Consider the impact of weather forecasts, park/track closures & fire dangers
