The Wallumarra Track to Bola Creek
Dharawal Country

1 h 45 min to 3 h 30 min

4.7 km
oneway

↑ 64 m
↓ -230 m

Moderate track
This walk becomes more interesting once you reach the end of the service trail section and start on the bush track. There are great views going down the hill, and once at Bola Creek the track meanders alongside the creek, through a dark forest, until meeting up with Lady Carrington Dr. Let us begin by acknowledging the Dharawal people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
