Euroa - Walking Trails



The Strathbogie Shire, local Landcare groups and the Strathbogie Ranges Conservation Management Network has documented a mumber of local walks.

Balmattum Hill Walking Trail, Euroa
Clear route markers are placed along the track for both short and long walks. The Balmattum Hill Walking Track links with the Seven Creeks Walking Track, or Apex Track

Short walk - The track from the car park to the rotunda is about 300 m long, offering a pleasant walk with valley views. Along the track, extensive revegetation using native plant species has helped prevent soil erosion and create better habitats for wildlife, and it has made the area more attractive.

Long walk - From the rotunda, the track rises steeply (about 170 m of incline) for about 1 km and ends near the summit of Balmattum Hill. The track offers views over Euroa township and across the vast Victorian northern plains as far as the eye can see. Rather spectacular! The track passes a rock stack, showing where during World War II soldiers physically trained by carrying rocks up the hill. These rocks remain along the track side.

Distance:
Short walk – 600 m return
Long walk – 2 km return
Total – 2.6 km return

Relative difficulty:
Short walk – easy
Long walk – moderate

Location:
175 Euroa–Strathbogie Road, Euroa
