Our exclusive guest walking trails lead you alongside rivers to historic red gums, blooming wildflowers and local wildlife
Woodlands Wander (*in redevelopment)
Located on the Royal Mail Hotel’s sister property, Mount Sturgeon Station, this walk offers a step back in time. The 45-minute loop leads you to a heritage-listed River Red Gum, estimated to be 418 years old. At one stage, this tree has fallen over and continued to grow with the main branches now forming the canopy. It is an amazing piece of history, among other incredible trees, views of Wurgarri and native wildlife. The walk starts at a signed gateway along the Mount Sturgeon Station driveway.
*We are proud to announce our parent conservation team have completed a new 95 hectare (238 acre) safe haven encapsulating the Woodlands Wander walk and to complement the existing Eastern Quoll captive breeding facility. This work was completed thanks to the Australian Government’s Environment Restoration Fund, via a Threatened Species Strategy Action Plan grant. We hope to provide Royal Mail Hotel guests with controlled special conservation access to this area in 2024.
Starting along Salt Creek, near the Royal Mail Hotel, this grassy track then hugs the Wannon River below Wurgarri. It is an enjoyable walk where you can spot wallabies, kangaroos, emus and bird life. Finishing at Mount Sturgeon Station, walkers can return via the same track, or continue along the Peregrine Trial.
