Easy track
Starting from the Honeyeater Hollow car park off Rushton Road, Martin, this walk takes you on a circuit via the Easy Walk Trail. This short and easy loop passes through Wandoo Woodland in Ellis Brook Valley Reserve, a thriving nesting and feeding area for birds renowned for the richness of its flora and fauna. The trail is symbolised by a red echidna, with informative signage dotted along the route. The compacted earth path is suitable for prams and wheelchairs. Keep an eye out for birds and echidnas. The best time to visit is spring, between mid-September and early November when the wildflowers are in bloom. The reserve is also dog friendly, as long as they're kept on a leash. Toilets, gas barbecues and parking are provided at Honeyeater Hollow. Drinking water is not available, so it is advisable to bring a water bottle. 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.
