Comments

Close to home (and Anaconda!), this is an area we had not previously visited. Originally described as 'wheelchair friendly', it was obviously not unless you had sand tyres: (I have changed it to 'Easy'). There are very few highlights, except for the occasional goanna, but a good trail for a bit of exercise. There was also a sign for the Robur Fire Trail at the start of the Boronia Trail, but not investigated, but presume that it follows the edge of the NP to the river?

This trail is connected to the Aemula and Boronia fire trail which can be accessed from the other end ( see pic /map attached ) . Easy to combine all of them making a for pleasant nice lone walk.
