Walk 29: Sheoak Picnic Ground Nature Walk
The track meanders through ferny glades, tall Manna Gums and a dense understorey of native vegetation. The track was constructed in 1993 with the help of students and staff at the then named Ballarat College of Advanced Education. Interpretative signs along the track give simple explanations regarding the flora, fauna and general environment.
