Comments

Tied this track in with Mt Blaine track for a shorter set of walks with our children. The track is an open graded gravel road. Creeks totally dry. Beautiful hoop pines and cattle yard with impressive termite mound.

Really nice walk. A little bit of water over the trail in parts but not really enough to cause problems. Would be more difficult after heavy rain. Saw a legless lizard of a type I'd never seen before. When we got to the end we saw a path leading away to the left, down to a rocky creek bed and then ascending up again. We didn't follow this but as we discovered later, this leads up back around to the Mt Blaine track, which we did from the picnic area on the same day. We are going to revisit this one and do the entire circuit up Mt Blaine, across to the Skywalk (I think that's what it's called) and then down to the end of Sandy Creek and back to the picnic area.

Walked along here on way up Mt Blaine from the East side. Not a very challenging track - very easy.

Nice level walk, lots of butterfly's at this time of year. Take a picnic and make a morning of it

Very Easy, pleasant walk.

Sand + Creek = Sandy Creek, fairly flat, I'd consider this easy.
