Another nice walk and ride for the family in the heart of Baringa.

HIGHLIGHTS
Start your journey at Baringa’s centre, from there you’ll follow a wide pathway ideal for walking, jogging, pushbikes and other mobility equipment. Along the pathway which is surrounded by nature, one of the highlights of this walk/ride is the natural frog ponds throughout the ride, these ponds host Wallum frogs which are native to the region, these makes a unique experience specially in the afternoon when frogs are out and active. Once you reach the first playground you can take a quick break while the young ones enjoy some playtime. Continue your journey and you will encounter a newly built path that meanders through a nature strip overlooking Eucalyptus Blackbutt forest and frog ponds. Along the pathway you will encounter two additional nature play space playgrounds, ideal for a break. From the last playground make your wayback though a bike lane that follows Aura Blvd. back to Baringa’s centre.

AFTERWARDS
Before or after grab a coffee at your local shops for the ride. It also important to highlight that toilet facilities and drinking fountains are easily located thought out the walk/ride.
