True to its name, Scribbly Gums Conservation Area has plenty of scribbly gums!
Most of the tracks are wide enough for a vehicle. Several vegetation types are passed throughout the bushwalk.
Some of the track is very rocky and unstable underfoot.
When walking in the early morning, while the dew is still on the ground, be sure to keep an eye out for intricate spider’s webs.
