Moderate track
Starting from the car park on Daranda Terrace, Milang, this walk follows the former railway line from Milang to Sandergrove via the Nurragi Conservation Reserve Walking Trail. As you walk along the path, you’ll discover many of the signs of the railway line that used to run here. About halfway through the trail, at the site of the former Nurragi Station, there is a picnic spot with benches and tables. The picnic spot provides lots of information, including maps of the trail, details on flora, fauna and history, and brochures for walkers. 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.
