Swagmen used to talk about “taking to the wallaby track” and swamp wallabies are common in the regrowth messmate and peppermint forest on top of the Divide.

From an ancient volcano above the gracious township of Buninyong, the Wallaby Track heads through the heart of stately Ballarat, plunges into a gold rush era churned landscape and on to Norman Lindsay’s home town of Creswick. From there, it’s uphill past St Georges Lake and rolling pastoral countryside ringed by volcanic hills to contour next to the state’s longest timber tramway system and a traverse through an impressive one kilometre long railway cutting on a long abandoned railway line. More tall forest with a side trip to Sailors Falls delivers you to the cluster of mineral spas waiting for weary bodies and feet at Daylesford and Hepburn Springs.

Mostly dry and grippy, except for the rocks in the final descent, recent rain has left them nice and slippery.
