Starting from Halls Gap Caravan Park, Halls Gap, this walk takes you on a circuit, visiting Halls Gap Botanical Gardens. Enjoy the views of Stony Creek that are scattered throughout the walk after you are welcomed by small groups of Kangaroos. You can also look out for ancient rock formations, and do not forget to enjoy the lovely waterfall and the view at Bullaces Glen. There can be sections of the walk that can be steep and less shady. 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.
Before you start any bushwalk ensure you;
• Tell someone you trust where you are going and what to do if you are overdue
• Have adequate equipment, supplies, skills & knowledge for the whole journey
• Consider the impact of weather forecasts, park/track closures & fire dangers
• Can respond to emergencies & call for help at any point
