Starting from Silent Groove Camping Area, Wunaamin Conservation Park, this return walk takes you on a stroll along a creek line. You can enjoy the rainforest setting and observe the wildlife in tranquillity. The abundant supply of water allows the area to flourish and the animals to thrive, giving visitors a unique experience. The path follows a creek line and can be uneven at certain sections with rock hoppings. Additionally, it can get extremely hot in the area; you can bring plenty of water and prefer to traverse early in the morning and evening. 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.
