However, beginners should opt for the trail which has been marked as easy, and children should only ride on the concrete paths.

View the wildlife  the park has many tallowwoods, ironbark, stringybark, and grey gum trees. This makes it an ideal residing place for koalas, birds, wallabies, reptiles, and possums.
