Bloodwood (Tallowwood), Toohey Ridge & Mimosa
Starting from the car park on Isabella Street, Tarragindi, this circuit walk gives you a solid tour of Toohey Forest via multiple tracks, passing by a creek along the way. The Bloodwood (Tallowwood), Toohey Ridge & Mimosa track offers a tranquil walk through eucalypt woodland, with the sound of the flowing creek adding to the refreshing ambience (after rainfall). The journey can be customised with optional tracks, and the forest boasts an abundance of wildflowers, especially in spring. The Toohey Forest is home to over 400 native animals, including the short-beaked echidna, red-browed finch, and rainbow lorikeet. The canopy provides shade, making the walk rather comfortable on sunny days. Dogs are welcome on lead. Signage is limited, so pay attention to the map or app, and last but not least, keep an eye out for snakes. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
