Get To Know Our Tracks – Yan Wirring Mirr Loop Track
Yan Wirring Mirr Loop Track
The newest addition to Surf Coast walks is this spectacular track that is 4.5 km long and takes about 2.5 hours. The grade requires moderate fitness as we walk over undulating hills across uneven terrain. Walking poles may be useful.
We will park on Bald Hills Road and walk up to the Bunjil Mirr Lookout and then return down and cross the road to continue the loop.
Be prepared for a forever changing botanical feast as we cross the open heathland, descend into the swampy woodland before enjoying the heathland once again as we complete the loop. It’s not just the vegetation but the variety of bird calls that will delight. As will the possibility of seeing Bundjil soaring the thermals.
Bring walking shoes, poles, sun protection, water, a snack and insect repellent. Contact Gail 0401 301 851
