This trail is 30k long from start (Don Valley) to finish (Warburton East). Over the course of the last few weeks, I have completed nearly the whole track in various sections (just haven't done the last 8km section in Warburton East). It's a beautiful trail - very quiet. I've only seen a handful of other people on it on each... More

We have been going to Warburton for over 20 years and only this year had we discovered this beautiful walking track!!! We visited this walk twice, once last summer and once in winter and I must say both were just as good, in winter it was snowing and looked amazing. We walked 6kms from the part near the old hospital.... More

A lot of people love this track for riding, but it's a great walk. Very interesting history and it's a looong walk. Nice and quiet away from roads so you can enjoy nature without the traffic whizzing by.

I love walking on a pace of 5 km/h or more. In that case it was too much to see that we could keep up this pace. Was there with a visitor from Germany and the birds and plants were very special for her. Even though the weather wasn't really good we enjoyed this walk and I can imagine doing... More

We decided to check out the O'Shannessy's water duct trail when visiting Warburton. It was 2kms long, but when the trail soon narrowed through people property, we wondered how any one could pass or was it a one way trail?

Pretty and easy walk through the national park. We saw Rosella's and heard Lyrebirds, Kookaburras and other birds. Tips to make your walk more memorable and enjoyable, make sure you go to the loo before you start your walk because we didn't see any public toilets. Take some water too. If you like bird calls, download a free app to... More

A great place to enjoy a family bike ride or walk. Fairly flat, well made trail. For good access, views and picnic spot drive to car park at the end of Dee Road in Millgrove- before you get to warburton.

The O'shannassy Trail can be walked or ridden on bike. From Yuonga Rd you can walk eastwards to Cement Creek and return [14kms] or walk west wards to Dee Road and return [ 12.5kms]. Lovely tree ferns and tall mountain ash line the route. At times you are accompanied by the call of the lyre-bird , crimson rosellas dash passed... More

An easy, mainly level walk on an excellent surface however I only went half way and returned with an elderly gentleman who has difficulty with any distance walking
