Route/Trail notes

This walk begins at the Polblue Camping Area and circles the Swamp in an anti clockwise direction.  It crosses a number of bridges over streets that either drain from or feed into the Swamp. There are interpretive signs along the way that tell about the flora and fauna of the Swamp. When you reach the picnic area, the track seems to disappear for a minute.  Keep following close to the swamp and you will see it pick up again and take you over another bridge over Polblue Creek before returning to the camping area. 

Permits/Costs

No cost unless camping

Comments

We really enjoyed the different vegetation in this area. There are many trees with moss and lychen and a lot of wild flowers.
