Completed as part of the walk from Paradise to Cherry Plain. Nice Walk. This section particularly is quite flat. We did the return journey along the national park path rather than the road because it was such an easy walk

Prickly pear fruit is in season-delicious. Westcott picnic area is a very scenic place for a cooked lunch.

Did this as part of hike from Burtons Well to Dandabah. Very easy walk , quite a few branches covering the track but that's part of the fun

Another great walk that isn't hard. Lot's to see.

I saw several goannas today on this walk, no snakes thankfully! Great walk but my legs were getting tired after too many kilometres yesterday so the uphill walk back along the road from Cherry plain to Westcott was hard. I did a kilometre or two off track which was great too, there are some spectacular spots for this who can venture off safely.
