1 hr 30 mins

2.9 km Circuit

201 m

Hard track
Starting from Sandringham Close, this walk follows the Sandringham Track up the hill to the views from Colin Watters Lookout. After enjoying the views, you walk past the tower to the other side of the hill to the much less spectacular Nyari Lookout. From here, you follow a wide management trail down the hill, back to the start of the walk. An enjoyable circuit walk for those who do not mind hills, worthwhile for the views from Colin Watters Lookout.
