This very scenic walk takes you up through Bertha’s Gully on the western side of the Weddin Mountains. Named after Bertha Seaton of the historic Seaton’s Farm, it leads to a secluded, tranquil spot where you’ll often see waterfalls making their way through the gully after a good rain.
Located at the eastern end of Ben Hall’s campground, the trail is lined with rugged rocks and little stone overhangs. The walk takes you through woodland dominated by white box, blakely’s red gum, grey box, fuzzy box and kurrajong, which persists up much of the gully. Along the flanks of the gully, hillside species such as black cypress pine, mugga ironbark, shrubby sheoak and tumbledown red gum dominate the open forest. Expect to see Australian indigo, wattles and seven dwarf’s grevillea throughout your hike. It’s best seen in spring when the wildflowers – orchids and lilies - and shrubs are blossoming, and the surrounding farming country looks flush and fertile.
A medley of birds and wildlife may well join you; superb parrots, kookaburras and rosellas all chat cheerfully overhead, as wallabies and kangaroos forage for tasty nibbles in the rich foliage of the gully.
