Easy track
Starting from Pioneer Museum, Northcliffe, this walk takes you on a circuit through coastal swamp vegetation. This walk is for the ones that are looking for a quick, effortless escape to the forest. You can opt to have a picnic in Arcadia picnic spot in the middle of the forest. It is possible to spot bright red bottlebrushes along the walk during the summer. There are only gentle hilly sections, but the path can be slippery during the winter as there are rocky sections. No bushwalking experience is required. 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.
