I love slow travel, slow food and discovering new adventures and delicious regional food in new locations. I'm on an indulgent quest and I'd love you to follow at www.walkeatshare.wordpress.com

A Walk in the Park
Next time you find yourself in Lobethal, make time to do a bush walk in Bushland Park. The park is located on Berry Hill Road and it's easy to find if you follow the signs from the Main Street.

The park has a children's playground and sheltered barbecues, ideal facilities for birthday parties or family fun.

The park skirts around a tranquil billabong.

There are four self-guided walking trails around the park, each indicated by coloured arrows so you don't lose your way.

Before you set off, take time to read the information boards, near the barbecues, which describe the flora, fauna and cultural significance from both European and Aboriginal perspectives.

The shortest option takes an estimated 45 minutes through Stringybark and Yacca country and incorporates a lookout with a wonderful view over Lobethal and the neighbouring Kenton Valley.

If you have 2 hours and 40 minutes to spare, take the longest trail and see all the park has to offer which includes wetlands, creeks and reservoirs as well as woodlands and grasslands.

After the walk you'll need sustenance. Why not head to the nearby Lobethal Bierhaus for a refreshing beer and something delicious to eat?

I am not sure if I have been to this park....but your article inspires me to take a look...it should be worth a visit after it greens up and the snakes are in hibernation.
