Moderate track
Starting from Wonderland Car Park, Halls Gap, this return walk takes you to Turret Falls and back. The area, Wonderland Range, is host to 430 years old sandstones thurst up and shaped by heat and movement through the years. It is a relatively short walk with occasional steps and a formed dirt track. There are also wildflowers in abundance for the enthusiasts that want to observe them. If you're going to get the best experience out of this walk, a visit during the wet season can be helpful as the flow increases. 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.
