Track Overview

Starting at the carpark on a track just off Burrunggul Access you will follow the easy to follow trail as it makes it's way to Kubara Pools. Along the way you should see many native animals including Wallabies, Lizards and more. Red Cliffs line the walls on the track to the Pools, once you reach the Kubara pools you can opt to admire the pools from the dry edge of the water or get right in it and have a swim (pools un-swimmable at times due to rainfall). To finish the hike simply return back along the track to the carpark.

*Please note that finding the trailhead can be hard at times as some of the roads and carparks are not listed on Google Maps, for this reason it is advised that you have a topographic map of the region with you.
