Walk as much or as little as you like around the Mount Kaputar plateau on the Bundabulla circuit walking track. The entire circuit links several shorter walks, including Lindsay Rock Tops walk, Eckford lookout walk, Bundabulla link track, and Dawsons Springs nature trail, and offers places to picnic and terrific views of Mount Kaputar and surrounds.

Following Lindsay Rock Tops walk, turn right at the signposted junction; you’ll know you’re on the right path when you pass fragrant tea tree scrub and a small bridge.

From here, the self-guided walk passes through a variety of vegetation types and rock formations, with grey kangaroos and wallaroos feeding in the undergrowth. Expect to see grassy plains and heath flowers, particularly in springtime, and lava flow remains near the lookout.

Bundabulla lookout and Horsearm lookout are superb spots for viewing wedge-tailed eagles, so don’t forget the camera. You might even see one of the famous pink slugs and carnivorous native snails if the weather is on the cold side. Pack a picnic lunch and extend your walk by linking the circuit to several other exhilarating walks.
