Moderate track
Starting at the Pines Car park near the end of Queens Jubilee Drive, Belair, this circuit walk takes you through Belair National Park via the Lorikeet, Yurrebilla and Waterfall tracks. As you walk through Echo Tunnel, spend some time at lookouts and soak in the view over the beautiful waterfalls. The lookouts are not fenced, so take care. In spring, you can see a plethora of wildflowers, including large-leaved bush peas and hairy pink bells. Keep a lookout for koalas and echidnas, as well as the endangered southern brown bandicoot. 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.
