Enjoy a meander along well-marked service tracks in Venmans Bushland National Park, (please note, there are some undulations/hills and a couple of creek crossings.) This walk provides a great opportunity to get out in the bush and enjoy your surroundings, with a chance to see wallabies, koalas and birdlife.

As you wander through the Eucalyptus forest, enjoy conversations with some like-minded ladies or take some quiet time to reflect and escape from your daily busy life.

This National Park is named after the previous owner, John (Jack) Burnett Venman. Being a strong bushman, Jack had a dream to conserve his 255 acres (103ha) of land for visitors to enjoy the tranquillity of the bush. During 1971, he sold his land to the Albert Shire Council for one dollar. He continued on as caretaker for a further 10 years, creating walking tracks, firebreaks, dams, creek crossings and barbeques areas.

After the walk, stay and enjoy some fresh baked goodies for morning tea.

If you are starting out with your outdoor adventures and are testing out new equipment and boots, please bring some blister tape just in case.
