Walk | A bushwalk of any kind short or longThe Nattai River is a place not often visited but it's certainly worth the effort of getting there as it's a peaceful and spectacular place to spend a few hours searching out the odd platypus or wombat! On this walk we will descend to the river and follow it along to the Slott Way Track so making this an interesting circuit. By this time of year, the wattle should be starting to bloom, so this could be a colourful walk, too! Steep ascents and descents.
