Join Betty for a beautiful twilight hike and sunset at the Black Hill conservation park

We will cover a number of the tracks in the park, heading up the Ambers Gully and Yurrebilla Trails passing through rocky gullies and mixed open forests dominated by stringybark, pink gum, blue gum, red gum and manna gum that provide habitat for an abundance of bird life, western grey kangaroos and koalas. Be on the look out for the blue wrens, southern boobook owls, black-faced cuckoo-shrikes and the occasional falcon that will hunt along the ridgelines of the park. 

Once at the top we will take a break to enjoy sunset and a snack before heading back down via the Main Ridge track for a hot drink and sweet treat to finish our evening

There is easy parking and a toilet nearby the starting point if you need to change prior to walking.

This is a moderate hike with some steep sections so reasonable fitness is required but we will travel at a pace that will suit everyone attending on the night. 


*The area is part of the traditional lands of the Kaurna (‘Gar-na) people. They used the land for hunting and gathering and obtaining wood for fire and shelter during their seasonal relocation from the coast. One of the group’s most important tools was fire, this was particularly useful in fire management practices which encouraged vegetation regrowth. The seasonal use of Black Hill would have have allowed game populations to recover, maintaining a relatively steady food supply.

A Day on Straddie Minjerribah (Stradbroke Island) QLD

Sun 31st October 2021 | Margaret

The day was cold, wet and windy such a contrast to the hot and steamy days prior to the walk. That's natures unpredictability. Due to that we saw and had unusual but amazing experience's of grey stormy skies, wild winds and turbulent oceans. Chris changed things to fit in the day as circumstance's unfolded. Chris performs well under pressure. We also got to see wallabies and Koalas.

The activities and walks were all very informative and easy going in a very picturesque setting. If you've got little to no experience with camping before, this is a great introduction! I've been camping heaps and this was the most relaxed, stressless and fun camping weekend away, especially being fully catered.
