Starting just off Creekton Road in Strathblane, this walk leads to Duckhole Lake and back via the Duckhole Track. This walk takes you through a forest of stringybarks and stretches of tea tree swamp, via a well-constructed boardwalk that follows a stream running off the lake. A steep but short slope leads to a small cleared spot with a picnic table, revealing the beautiful lake. Lying within the Southwest National Park, Duckhole Lake is a deep flooded sinkhole connected to the extensive surrounding cave network. There is no formal path around the lake but it is possible to wander along the banks on either side of the path, and there is a rustic seat where you can sit and enjoy fine views of Adamson's Peak. It is perfect for those just wanting to immerse themselves in beautiful rainforest scenery and enjoy a quiet stroll in nature. The biggest challenge may be finding where the track starts, due to a lack of clear signage. 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.
