This is a perfect family walk because it is short, varied, the track is suitable for a pram and nature's playground is awaiting your children at the end!
Park at the Branch Road Entrance Carpark and follow the signs to Big Rock. The wide gravel track will lead you through the bush on a slight incline. You will end up at Big Rock where you will find large boulders to climb on and lots of cubbies other children (and adults!) have made. There is a big area for kicking the ball around or playing cricket and there are two woodfire BBQs perfect for toasting marshmallows! This is a 1 way track. You will need to either walk back to the car OR organise a way to be picked up at the Big Rock Carpark. There are toilets at this carpark. The track is suitable for a pram, however, there are small steps along the way (which would be easy to navigate with a pram).
easy walking for little kids
be aware that the track does cross over a road here. It is rare to come across traffic but kids need to be warned before approaching this intersection
you can take dogs to the You Yangs if they remain on the lead
a great place for a sausage sizzle or just to toast marshmallows for the kids!
come and play in the cubbies that other people have made or come and make your own
these boulders are great fun for kids to climb, explore and use their imaginations
a great place to explore , climb and learn
