Maps:

Highlighted in the Visitor Guide Town Map.

Route/Trail notes:

From the Caravan Park, head east along Shaw Street and left up towards the Aquatic Centre. Just before the Bike Park, you will see the track to your left, that takes out and along Julia Creek. You then cross the creek and turn right along the northern bank and just before the RV Friendly Camping Area, you recross the creek back along the southern side loop back to the start.

Permits/Costs:

None.

Other References/Comments:

A bird list is available from the Information Centre.

If you stay overnight, take a stroll out to the wine glass shaped Water Tower, opened in 1971, that stands at 30m, where a blue light illuminates the Tower at night creating a striking visual effect.

Comments

I would like to say that I completed this walk, but unfortunately not. After recent storms and flooding, it was washed away, leaving no means to cross the creek. Council were working on its restoration.
