Starting near the carpark on Ironbark Road, this walk leads to Falcons Lookout and back via the Ironbark Gorge Track. Passing through dry gum woodland on a rocky path, this steep climb to Falcons Lookout rewards you with scenic views of Werribee Gorge and beyond. During spring, one of the highlights is definitely the wildflowers, with wattles in full bloom at every turn. Falcons Lookout is a popular area for rock climbing, and it's likely that you'll see some climbers or absailers along the way. The path is is wide and fairly well signposted, but is quite steep in places, with some easy scrambling 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.
