Description

Find out more

You're on the traditional lands of the Brabralung Tribe, one of five making up the Gunai / Kurnai people. Learn about their creation story as you do this lovely short walk.

Part of the 'Bruthen Walking Trails' series of short bush walks, the Easy Magic Loop is the shortest and most accessible, suitable for all people able to handle a formed gravel path.

There are plenty of rest stops with signage describing the flora and fauna.

Note that the recent bushfires in this region have left many trees blackened, although its wonderful to see how the forest is regenerating. Spring is a lovely time to observe wildflowers including Hop bush, common heath and Snowy Daisy Bush.

As this is a state forest dogs are permitted, but must be on-leash at all times to protect flora and fauna.

Please note there are no toilets here.

If you enjoyed this walk, why not try the trickier 2.5km Explosive Magazine Loop walk, which connects to this track.

Our East Gippsland Shire walks were mapped with support from VicHealth.

This is the start point for all five of the Bruthen Walking Trails: this one, Easy Magic, is indeed the easiest of them all!

This trail has been designed to suit people of all abilities including those with disability. The Bruthen Walking Trails were opened in 2005 with funding from the Victorian Government.

3. Rest point

There are a number of stops along the way, with interesting information about the area, its people, flora and fauna.

We loved all of the information along the way. Each board features a different theme.

The 2019-2020 Eastern Victorian bushfires severely impacted this region. You can see evidence on the Red Ironbark, Red Box and Mountain Grey Gums but flowers are coming back too!
