Spotted Gum Trail

Daisy Hill Conservation Park
Many walks are currently closed due to COVID-19. Please,
  • check the walk's official website to confirm if the track is open
  • turn back if it looks like the track is too busy when you get there

A fairly level four wheel drive track, so is quite an easy going walk, but a few hilly bits. It takes you through Eucalyptus forest.
For best parking, park at the top right "corner" of the Daisy Hill Rd parking loop at P6. There is a small toilet at P7 about 100m south from P6 on the same loop.
The track can also be accessed at its top left side from Underwood Road.
This loop track can be accessed from the Tree Discovery Trail. There is a track that branches links the two.
4km approx. 1hr

For the 4km Spotted Gum Tree trail, park at the right top "corner" of the Daisy Hill Rd parking loop at P6. Follow your nose and it is well signposted from there.

The scenery is pretty and peaceful but quite boring and all much the same. Its a wide 4wd track, fairly flat but a few hilly bits.
Nice to smell the honey as you walk past the hives.
Plenty of bikes and families with young kids on a Sunday late arvo.
Took me 1 hr 10 with a couple of mini stops.

Late arvo sun gives a nice light to the top of gumtrees. Weekday offers reduced traffic/ dust.

Good track, nice and wide. Easy circuit - added this on while doing the buhot creek circuit. Plenty of birdlife on the straight section of the track heading to the actual loop.

An easy track with a display of birdlife on the straight section on the day.

We took the extension off the Buhot circuit to do both Buhot and Spotted Gum. Nice easy morning walk, took us 2 hours at an easy pace.

Our first bush walk! Pretty easy, wide tracks. The cicadas made amazing humming sounds and you could smell the honey the bees where busy making. Quite enjoyable.
