Description

Find out more

Adjacent to Strathbogie township, this beautiful 2.2km return bush-walk travels alongside permanent waterways through soaring swamp, peppermint and manna gum forest.

The riparian zone is significant habitat for indigenous flora, fauna, bird and aquatic life. Children love to explore the water and run along the track at a great pace. However, slowing them down and encouraging observation may result in a pleasing sighting or two.

Suitable for all ages. It is a wonderful track for the whole family to enjoy. There are several interpretive signs and an “Educational Shelter” along the way. A couple of short steep sections may be best negotiated by less able walkers with assistance. Wooden benches are provided at intervals along the track.

This is a volunteer-managed mown trail that is subject to flood erosion. The track can be uneven. In warmer months snakes may be present. If you see one, by all means admire its beauty, keep your distance and it will do the same.

Points of Interest

1. Spring Creek foot bridge

This foot bridge links Bridge to Bridge with the Council Reserve swimming hole, picnic shelter and the Nganganu Trail extension upstream along Spring Creek.

2. Spring Creek cascades

Tumbling over rough granite, Spring Creek never runs dry and always delivers the melodious sound of running water. The cascades are a delightful place for children's water play.

3. The Confluence

The clear waters of Spring Creek join the sediment laden waters of Seven Creeks to run down to Gooram and Euroa via Polly McQuinns Weir. Rakali are often seen in this area.

4. A local resident.

Koalas live on the Strathbogie Tableland. They are commonly seen along this track. Look around, look carefully, and your chances of spotting one are good.

5. Nature Circuit signage

This circuit loops around a frog pond and forest. Interpretive signs inform regarding local fauna.

6. Smith's Bridge Day Picnic Area and Educational Shelter

A great place to eat in the open, drop a line in the water hole or simply savour the great outdoors. Koala and platypus visit this spot. Keep your eyes open.

7. Trail head sign

The Bridge to Bridge track was turned from a degraded, weedy dumping ground into prime habitat through volunteer work and grant applications. The sign tells the story of that huge achievement.
