Turn down Mitchell Street (on the same side of the main road as the Caravan Park) and follow the gravel road beside the river until you reach the parking area for the walking track.

Features

This scenic walking track along the Loddon River takes about 20 minutes and leads to the base of the Cairn Curran Weir.

When water levels are high enough, the water flowing from the weir cascades dramatically down over layers of huge rocks - a very impressive sight.

The walking track itself is a narrow track winding through pretty shrubs and trees alongside the Loddon River. Along the way you will find a rope swing suspended from a tree overhanging the river and hear the lovely sound of unseen rushing water get louder and louder as you progress.

Take care clambering over rocks to get close to the water, some rocks are covered with a thin layer of loose gravel and others are quite slippery when wet.

If the water is low enough to get across the rocks to the other side of the river, there is a staircase leading to the top of the weir where you can walk all the way along it to the Cairn Curran Weir Picnic Area.

As you are driving in to the parking area for the walking track, keep an eye out on the right hand side for the gorgeous love seat that has been cut into the side of a fallen tree alongside the river. This seat makes a beautiful spot for a quiet lunch or romantic picnic.
