Starting from the carpark on Cathedral Avenue, off the Great Northern Highway, Brigadoon, this walk takes you on a circuit along Swan River via the Goat and Riverwalk tracks. Bells Rapids is a lovely spot for a picnic, bushwalking and getting a healthy dose of nature. A walk bridge spanning the Swan River over the white water rapids make this an exciting viewing spot during the Avon Descent. There are many fantastic vantage points along the trail to stop and admire the superb views of Bells Rapids, the countryside and coastal plains. Majestic boulders and granite outcrops are another great feature of this hike. In spring, keep a lookout for wildflowers such as the Fuchsia Grevillea. There are also plenty of kangaroos in the area, as well as an abundance of birds. There are several rock pools along the river that make for an inviting dip on a hot day. If you do go swimming at Bells Rapids, take care as the river can have strong undercurrents. Dog owners will be happy to know that dogs are welcome at Bells Rapids. This walk can get quite steep and rocky at points, and some sections aren't well marked. Although the climbs aren't long, the gradient will surely get the blood pumping. 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.

Starting from Mount Franklin Road, Brindabella, this walk takes you to the Bendora Arboretum and back via Chalet Road(a management road), visiting the historic Bendora Hut as well. Notice the change of smell as you walk through different tree sections in the arboretum as you enjoy the natural views and ambiance. 52 different tree species were planted in groups of 81 when the arboretum was first established in 1940. You can get into the details whilst exploring the arboretum as there are plenty of informative signposts at each section. Don’t miss out on the views over the valley while you’re focused on reading the said signposts. The historic Brenda Hut is there to welcome you to the arboretum, with some benches and a fireplace inside. Some people say that it was built in the early 1940s to serve as a shelter for the Forestry and Timber Bureau workers at the time. Others claim it was built in 1930 by Ted Kennedy for laborers building the road. The arboretum provides an entirely different experience in each season, from deciduous trees shedding their leaves to a silent white blanket over the land. Try to photograph each season to make them into a collage that you can proudly represent on your wall. Keep in mind there is no signal reception in the area, so make sure you inform others prior to the journey. 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.
