Starting from Buandik Picnic Area, Glenisla, this return walk takes you to Billimina Art Site and Billimina Falls. You can enjoy some magnificent aboriginal art over the massive rock formation at the Billimina site and glimpses of the Victoria Range through the trees. There are over 2,500 motives you can observe in the area comprised of red ochre. The walk itself is not physically demanding, but you can feel the emotional rush as you pass by the motives. Additionally, you can observe the rich plantation and Bilimina Falls, a seasonal fall that is more intense during the wet season. The rock formations can be sharp and slippery. Therefore, you might want to wear grippy footwear with ankle support. 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.
Before you start any bushwalk ensure you;
• Tell someone you trust where you are going and what to do if you are overdue
• Have adequate equipment, supplies, skills & knowledge for the whole journey
• Consider the impact of weather forecasts, park/track closures & fire dangers
• Can respond to emergencies & call for help at any point
• Are healthy and fit enough for this journey
If not, change plans and stay safe. It is okay to delay and ask people for help.
