Easy track
Starting from the dirt car park on Depot Hill Road, Yarragadee, this walk takes you on a stroll in Depot Hill Reserve. This popular walk offers visitors views of wildflowers and interpretive signage about the history of the area. It was used as a firing range, dating back as far as the 1940s. The area is full of everlastings, and visitors can spot orchids as well. Look out for the birds as the area is known to host tall gums, which help with their nesting, along the nearby Irwin River. There are only gentle hilly sections, and the surface is even throughout the walk. 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.
