Para Wirra Southern Border
1 h 45 min to 2 h 45 min
Starting from the intersection of Humbug Scrub Road and Bassnet Road, this circuit track gives you a tour of the southwestern corner of the Para Wirra Conversation Park, crossing Mack Creek multiple times along the way. This family-friendly trail is easy to follow, well-signposted and wide enough for comfortable walking. Dog walking is also permitted on this trail (on lead). Visitors can expect to see a variety of wildlife along the way, including white-winged choughs, wattlebirds, emus, scarlet robins and blue wrens. The area is particularly lively when the gums and wattles are flowering. Emus can often be heard making their unique drumming sounds as they roam around the picnic grounds. Visitors are advised not to feed the emus, as they may try to steal food. 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.
