Connecting Echo Point picnic area with Bonnie View, this easy walking track offers a quiet 750m stroll through open forest, with scenic views as a reward at either end. Beginning behind the Echo Point picnic shelter, the track blooms in spring with beautiful wildflowers like yellow banksia and purple geebungs. It also offers a terrific place for native birdwatching at any time of year - gang gang cockatoos are particularly beautiful. Given the picnic facilities at Echo Point, consider setting out on Lovers walking track after a leisurely lunch, and then taking advantage of several nearby walks to extend the afternoon hike even further. After reaching Bonnie View, you can return to Echo Point via the gravel road and wishing well, stretching the circuit out to an hour. You might also like to join the walk with a stroll in the opposite direction, descending through the sandstone escarpment at Echo Point on Mount Carnarvon walking track, which leads to a lesser-visited hilltop lookout.
