Half-day Walking Tour

Half-day walks will generally visit two or three camp sites with a variety of stone tools and scarred trees or earth ovens. Visitors will be able to examine various tools and the cores from which tools were manufactured. Walks are designed to introduce the visitor to the environment in which the traditional owners made their home and the resources on which they depended.

The bird and animal life generally encountered on walks adds variety to the experience.

Half-day walks cover a total distance of about three kilometres and will take about three hours, allowing time to explore sites and other features of interest along the track.

A light morning or afternoon tea is included in each half-day walk.
