The Junction Track

Multiple Locations

The Junction track is an easy walk downstream from the Bald Rock Creek day-use area along the northern bank of Bald Rock Creek to its junction with Ramsay Creek. In dry seasons, these creeks may not run. Enjoy colourful track-side wildflowers in spring - this track is a must for wildflower lovers. Flowering shrubs fringing the creek provide nectar for honeyeaters and parrots. Take the time to look in rock pools and to watch superb wrens, red-browed firetails and thornbills moving through creek bank thickets seeking insects.

This track can also be accessed from the Bald Rock Creek camping area. Return distance: 3.7 kilometres return. Time: 1.5-2 hours.
