Points of Interest

1. Picnic tables, BBQ and toilets

This is a very popular picnic spot in summer. There are gas BBQs, several picnic tables and benches, and toilets. Photo by Parks Victoria.

2. Start of walking track

We took Coranderrk Track, a vehicle track that follows Badger Creek. Alternate routes include Lyrebird Track and Slip Creek Track. They're roughly the same distance but have steps.

3. Fresh mountain air

Fill your lungs with the fresh air from the surrounding forest. The sun dappled light made our walk truly magical!

4. Tree canopy

Don't forget to look up every now and then as you might spot some local birds or simply to enjoy the view.

5. Popular walk, even in the middle of winter

This walk is popular in summer as a lovely way to cool off, and in winter to enjoy the crisp and refreshing fresh air.

6. Colourful tree bark

The colours of a forest are always a treat. The lush green ferns and the dew drops on them are gorgeous, while the colours of the barks of trees are varied and ever changing.

7. Get up close

Forests are the perfect subject if you like photography. There's no shortage of beautiful landscapes and interesting close-ups to snap.

8. Badger Creek

It's a treat to see the Creek after a rainy day as it's full and fast flowing.
