Starting from the car park on Kowen Road, Kowen, this circuit walk gives you a taste of the western Kowen Forest mostly via the Southern Break Fire Trail. Going through a dense forest filled with wildlife, this track can make for a great birdwatching session. The area is home to various bird species such as the Scarlet Robin, Silvereye and the White-eared Honeyeater. You may also run into some cute little sugar gliders that can soar up to an impressive 100 metres between trees. In spite of their acrobatic moves and capabilities, they unfortunately can not swim at all, and drown almost instantly in any body of water. Shingleback lizards reside in the area as well, so try not to step on them as you make your way through the woodland. Keep in mind that motorbikes and 4WD vehicles can not enter the tracks without a permit. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
