Hard track
Starting near the Steiglitz Courthouse, in the historic township of Steiglitz, Brisbane Ranges National Park, this loop walk takes you through a historical part of Victoria's past, via the Hay Track and the Burchell Trail. This walk offers varied natural views, and there are plaques along the way where you can read about the old mining history of the area. You might also catch a glimpse of the local wildlife, which includes koalas, wallabies, echidnas, and many bird species. The track is in good condition overall, however, some sections aren't signed very well, and it is slightly muddy and overgrown in places. The last leg of the walk becomes quite rocky, and uncovered mine shafts can be seen from the trail. 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.
