Bald Hill walking track is an easy walk that meanders through open woodlands, past the historic relics of old mine workings. Situated in Hill End Historic Site, this scenic loop walk begins on Reef Street and offers an insight into the working conditions of the miners.
Along the way, you'll pass the remains of old mines, stamper batteries and dams. For a longer walk, choose to combine it with a Hill End village tour. If you want to experience what life was like underground for the miners, why not go on a tour of the nearby Bald Hill Mine?
In spring, the bush is a blaze of colour, with native plant life as well as fruit trees in flower. If you enjoy birdwatching, look out for the bright colours of king parrots, rosellas, grass parrots, finches and wrens darting about in the bush.
