Walk Description

To the right near the first parking area, take the track marked with both a WT6 and a WT7 sign. Very soon take the track to the left with the WT7 sign.  Follow the track looking at the information signs.  Cross the Ironbark Drive 4WD Track. 

At the T-junction, ignore the signed Currawong Falls Track to the left but turn right on the Nature Trail marked WT6 and WT7. Follow the track beside Distillery Creek to cross the Ironbark Drive 4WD Track again and on to the start of the walk and the cars.

Option:  Combine with Ironbark Gorge walk (4.5 km or about 1-1.5 hours) for a longer walk.  Both walks start in the same place. See separate description of the Gorge walk
