Powder Magazine Walking Track
Dunghutti Country

30 min to 1 h

1.3 km

↑ 37 m
↓ -41 m

Moderate track
Starting from Trial Bay Campground this one-way walk takes in the historic powder magazines at Arakoon National Park. There's only one construction left standing to get a feel of early Australian stone masons. Let us begin by acknowledging the Dunghutti people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
