Fire Trail Walks

Bunker Walk 3.4km Loop

Follow White Rocks

While at Possum Park why not take in the sights and enjoy walking around the 20 WWII ammunition bunkers.

1-8 & 10-16 are locked storage bunkers, 9 is an open bunker, 17,19,20 are accommodation, 18 is the park office. Julie and David are the owners of Possum Park.

This is a pleasant 3.4km walk that can be completed within the hour and is easily marked with white distance markers for your convenience.

Don’t forget your bottle of water, sunscreen and camera to capture some wonderful memories.

Caution, possible caravans and cars on road especially the last 1.4km back to camp.

Above Bunker Walk 3.1km Loop

Follow Red Rocks

This is the most challenging of the fire trails with lots of uneven surfaces and occasional termite mound that may have popped up overnight.

Your walk starts just behind the communal campfire following the red rocks through a newly regenerate forest to just above the bunker walk road.

You will notice a row of rocks placed beside the fire trail, please don’t cross the stone wall to the cliff edge, this is for your safety.

About 650m into your walk you will arrive at the sunset lookout on your right. Please be aware of the cliff edge while taking photos.

Continue along the fire trail following the red rocks and occasionally catching glimpses of the bunker walk road below.

Keep an eye out for kangaroos, wallabies and a collection of birds. The fire trail will follow the cliff edge and come to a clearing where water drains from the open paddock after heavy rain.

The fire trail will become narrower with more twists and turns due to the amount of trees. This is because the track was created by hand.

The fire trail will connect to the road and the last 900m of the bunker walk.

Once on the road follow the white rocks past bunkers 17 & 18. Outside bunker 19 you should be able to see the dam, feel free to take a look and sit on the log and watch the birds.

Continue past bunker 19 & 20 back up the road to camp.

Caution, this walk follows the cliff edge with an unfenced lookout not suitable for children. Also possible caravans and cars on road especially the last 1.4km back to camp.

Forest Walk 2.7km Loop

Follow Light Green Rocks

This is the flattest and widest of the fire trial but does still have some uneven surfaces.

You may come across some kangaroos and wallabies early in the morning and you will always hear a selection of birds even if they are hard to spot.

You will walk through dry regenerated forest areas and on the edge of open grass plains and close to the windmill and dam.  

Start your walk just behind the campfire following the light green rocks on your right. The sunset walk branches off after about 50m to the left & above bunker walks also branch off after about 300m.

Walk through the dry forrest and a recently cleared area which you might spot the windmill to the left in the distance. This walk parallels the above bunker walk but has slightly better views and more birdlife.

Continue following the light green rocks walking opening up to open grass planes on the left and dry forest on the right. Skirting around the edge of the forest you should be able to see a windmill and the bank of the dam before turning to the right. (Note! Please don’t go straight ahead as this is the owner’s private sheds and off limits) Turn right, follow the light green rocks.

The fire trail will connect to the road and the last 900m of the bunker walk. Once on the road follow the white rocks past bunkers 17 & 18. Outside bunker 19 you should be able to see the dam, feel free to take a look and sit on the log and watch the birds.

Continue past bunker 19 & 20 back up the road to camp.

Caution, possible caravans and cars on road especially the last 1.4km back to camp.

Sunset Lookout Walk 1.2km Return

Follow Yellow Rocks

This is a nice easy 600m walk to the sunset lookout. Start your walk just behind the campfire and walk along the edge of the forest on your right and open grass plains on your left.

You will cross the forest & above bunker walks to come to the lookout. Return 600m the way you came making this a 1.2km walk.

Caution this walk ends at an unfenced cliff and not suitable for children
