Event description

Join expert ecologist Phil Barron for a family-friendly bushwalk in the stunning Black Hill Conservation Park to learn about the birds, bugs and butterflies that can be found in our national parks. With wildflowers in full bloom in the middle of Spring, there will be lots to see and hear with all kinds of critters out & about! 

Who is this event for?

This is a family-friendly event for all ages.


There is a variety of trail surfaces in the park. Trails within the Wildflower Garden are soft path and spongy, with the surface covered in mulch which might make it difficult to push a pram, walker or wheelchair. This activity may also include walking on unsealed fire tracks that are uneven and rocky, with loose gravel surface.

The toilet onsite is NOT an accessible toilet. The closest accessible toilet is the public toilets at Foxfield Oval (1.6km distance).
