Starting at the base of the impressive Belougery Split Rock, we'll follow Burbie fire trail, a birdwatchers paradise. Try spotting the rare turquoise parrots darting overhead, before we delve off-track to the rarely visited Duffers Cave. Listen to fascinating stories on the history of the cave, reported to have been used by cattle duffers (thieves) in the past.

The return walk will be through the narrow sandstone gorge of Burbie Canyon which can provide a rare glimpse of koalas.
