Description [Suggest Changes]

Head out for this walk from Grant's Picnic Ground on the Lyrebird Walk, then continue on Neumann Track, which passes through cleared areas of bush created by the successive wildfires of the early 1900s. At the Paddy Track junction, continue the track downhill before climbing Welch Track. Welch Track then joins Coles Ridge Track, which is a wide fire vehicle access track that will lead you back to the picnic ground.

Most of the loop is through the rainforest so it can be quite muddy and wet under foot during rainy times. There are steep sections on Paddy and Welch Track, which may be slippery when wet.

The loop takes you through the beautiful rainforest where, if you're lucky, you may even see the elusive lyrebirds, wallaby, kangaroos and Australian birdlife.
