Distance 4.5km return
Time 2 Hours – Walking

Starting at the Caroline Sinkhole car park, this trail meanders through the eastern side of the park. An elevated viewing platform provides spectacular views of Caroline Sinkhole.

Penambol Conservation Park conserves an important area of remnant vegetation and contains several interesting geological features, including the Caroline Sinkhole. Excavations in the sinkholes have revealed evidence of the original inhabitants, Boandik Peoples, who were likely to have used the area for shelter.

There are also several educational walking trails that provide an insight into the animals that live in the park. Follow the Wombat Walk which passes burrows that are home to the common wombat. The Butterfly Walk provides the opportunity to see and learn about some of the local butterflies such as the splendid ochre butterfly and orange species butterfly.

An evening walk offers the best chance of sighting wombats.

More information can be found on the Penambol Conservation Park website.
