Easy track
Starting from the car park on Henham Track, Glenisla, this walk takes you on a circuit in Grampians National Park. Red Gum Walk has been adopted by Friends of the Grampians, a group that created one of the first accessible walking track guides for the Grampians. The area has been destroyed by a fire, but it is still worth seeing how it is recovering. You can now traverse between the swamp gums and river red gums. It is mainly flat, with sections comprised of gravel and earth track. 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.
