Easy walk nice to combine with Egernia circuit

Jollys Lookout closed for maintenance - so had to part up the hill (fire trail) as it was busy

Great walk, took two and half hours. Google maps doesn't quite take you to Jolly's lookout, have to keep driving and look for signs on left if coming from the gap direction.

Did this walk today with the kids. Was nice and level, some vines to climb over in some areas. Very walk but watch for the uneven pathway.

This is an awesome easy walk the whole family can do. Go up to Jollys lookout after and enjoy the view

Lovely walk. We spotted 3 pademelons and a black cockatoo.

Lovely walk Boombana to Jolly's and back. Wonderful to eat some fresh croissants we brought from town at the lookout. (Toilets nicer there too.) The highlight was seeing several red-necked pademelons along the way.

A lovely switch back walk that can be done with ease. Some slight but nice changes in vegetation. You can start either end but we prefer to have a break mid-way at Jolly's lookout and then head back from there. It's a shame the track doesn't continue to jolly's lookout and that you have to walk up the road.

Lovely walk that winds all the way to the carpark that joins onto the Egernia Circuit. There's some beautiful viewpoints and the track is well shaded. I managed to complete the track (there and back) in 2 hours at a steady pace. Will definitely be back.

An easy stroll, carried our 7 month old on my back. Agree with previous comments that it would be nice to do it in reverse (and take a picnic).

Easy and enjoyable

Lovely walk, went from Jollys Lookout to Boombana and back. Takes about 1hr 15 min each way (4km each way). Although I think it would be nice to do it the opposite way (Boombana to Jollys Lookout) so that you have the beautiful Jollys Lookout as your reward at the halfway point.

I started with the Egernia Circuit (1.5km) then continued onto the Thylogale Track then Pitta Circuit which was 11.5km return from Jolly’s Lookout. Wonderful and quiet. Loads of birds and wallabies.

Nice easy walk. It’s pretty flat. On another note I have to say that it’s really dry in the area. We’ve been up there many times and I’ve never seen so many trees with dead leaves.

Flat trail that made for a nice walk through the forest. I spotted one wallaby on the track, and a couple of handsome birds. You notice a slight shift from more tropical into something a little drier as you progress around the mountain. It took me two hours at a leisurely pace to do the Thylogale track including return.

An excellent walk through the rainforest. Easy & refreshing. Saw heaps of birds - whip bird, wompoo fruit dove, Australian king parrot, Australian log runner, yellow tailed black cockatoo, green catbird, regent bowerbird, large billed scrub wren.

A refreshing walk through the rainforest - lovely and peaceful. The track is well maintained and provides diverse flora. Spotted a wallaby, Wompoo Fruit-dove, Australian King Parrot, White-browed Scrubwren, Australian Logrunner, Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo, Green Catbird, Regent Bowerbird and Large-billed Scrubwren. This track is easy to follow.

Anoogle on 2 Jul, 2019

Very peaceful and easy walk, suitable for all fitness levels as its mainly all flat. Lots of wildlife spotting. A good summer walk as its in shade most of the way.
