Completed this as part of a 10km walk - Egernia Circuit, Thylogale Track & Pitta Circuit. Started and finished at Jolly’s lookout. A terrific level walk with minimal steps. Pademelons, birds & a lace monitor. Very quiet & peaceful.

A beautiful walk! Did this with 3 kids 7-8 years old. They loved it too. Took us a bit longer than recommended time.

A super quick 30 minute circuit that is great for kids. Be careful as the ground is quite uneven. I had a little fall but nothing serious, just a scraped knee. Lovely birds around and lots of shade.

Just the right exercise after a good picnic lunch.

An easy short loop at the start of the Thylogale Track. I started with this one then continued onto the Thylogale then Pitta Circuit which was 11.5km return from Jolly’s Lookout. Wonderful and quiet. Loads of birds and wallabies.
