Flagstaff Hill Lookout / Loop Walk (Greater Bendigo National Park)


Flagstaff Hill Lookout / Loop Walk (Greater Bendigo National Park)

This easy 1.1km Grade 3 loop walk leads visitors to one of the highest points in the Whipstick area, offering panoramic views over the Mallee landscape.

Starting from the Shadbolt Day Visitor Area, the track passes through both Mallee scrub and Box Ironbark forest where the remains of the 1850s gold rush can still be seen.

In spring, many species of wildflowers can be seen along the way.

The track is easy to follow and suitable for the whole family, however the ground is uneven and steep in places and can be slippery. Good walking shoes are recommended. There a few steps up to the viewing platform at Flagstaff Hill.
