Description

There are three walking tracks located around the billabongs, with picnic seating along the way.

Access to the area is via the corner of Phillipson Street and Cambridge Drive. The one mentioned here is the Billabong Loop. Also try the Torryong Track a little to the north.

The area is managed by Catholic Education with support from volunteers from Wangaratta Landcare and Sustainability Inc and other partner organisations. The area is managed primarily for conservation and education with local schools and groups regularly engaging in environmental education activities.

The health of the area has been improved through active weed management, revegetation, removal of European carp and the re-introduction of freshwater native fish. The wetland vegetation of Mullinmur Billabong is dominated by River Red Gums, Silver Wattle, Black Wattle, Sedges, Knotweed and herbs including Joyweed, Sneezeweed, and Carpetweed.

Look out for a range of wetland and woodland birds and during the evening you may catch a glimpse of Barking Owls, Sugar Gliders and Possums emerging from the large old trees that provide hollows and food for many species.
