We walked here at lunch on a relatively hot day - it felt like summer. Take a hat, sunscreen and water - while the walk is easy it is quite hot when the sky is blue. There are not many people on this walk which is great, and there are quite a few boards along the way talking about the... More

The walk itself is really enjoyable! We started and went about from the wrong direction(right to left) but its pretty much the same. It was well worth the effort and there were quite a number of tourists as well while we were there in Dec and was really hot&sunny. You will enjoy this walk best if you like the sandy/desert...

We took our three boys plus another on this walk. They loved it! Lots of caves and old buildings to explore and skinks to spot. Amazing landscape and history. And all the apricot trees at the Stewart town - the boys thought they had found gold!

We did this walk late one afternoon which was perfect as it would have been too hot earlier on. The walk times aren't as long as listed. We did the long loop going clockwise with the kids (11 yrs and 9 yrs) in 1hr 15 mins with lots of stops and breaks. Take a camera, water, sunscreen and a hat.... More

A short drive out to Bannockburn, past the wine yards, some not open for visitors yet and into the secluded carpark,safe to leave your vehicle here. A gentle stroll over the lower fields before a gentle climb up to the lower region of the sluice fields. You need to stop and look back to capture the spectacular views out over... More

This walk is amazing!! The landscape is outstanding and the views spectacular! It is an easy walk with a nice stop over at the old settlement, Stewart Town. Make sure you read the info boards along the way.

Pretty unique landscape with great vineyard views, yet a chance to appreciate the tough lives that the gold miners and early settlers endured.

I ran through here on Part of a marathon I did. I wasnt running fast it was at the end. It was an incredible juxtaposition to the mountain landscape behind it, right near the wineries! Real enjoyable run through here and the tracks are well sign posted. Id like to come back with my family and take more time to... More

Several different ways of walking up to Stewart town.. Lots of history to look at and in summer the apricots at Stewart town are awesome... mid level of fitness required

We had a walk here of a couple of hours. There are some great view higher up the track. Plenty of history too, if that is what you enjoy with information boards every so often. Great place to take children and dogs for a walk and then after, either head for a wine tasting or to The Kitchen for coffee... More
