Another short stroll. Not much to see on this walk except for birds.

Easy walk with a few rises

Nice walk, nice bit of an incline to start it off. Not a lot to see today except for a huge goanna.

Nice short walk, bit of an incline, but not challenging.

I did this as part of the broader Goolman Lookout/Rocky Knoll walk; I don't think it would be that interesting on its own.

Do this on a semi regular basis as a circuit run, usually completing two laps of the circuit, which is a total of about 5km or so. I find it more challenging if you take the Goolman Lookout trail then turn up towards the Rocky Knoll and coming back down to the paddock area. A good run, would be an easy walk though.

Cicada's so loud still

Challenging as it was very steep and continuous. Also, very loud. The cicada population were on song very early and the racket they made was near deafening.
