Beauty Spot Trail

Spot beautiful flora and fauna on one of Marysville's most-loved short walks. This easy nature trail follows the winding Leary Creek deep into tree fern groves and features a number of interpretive signs. The trail's abundant bird life will delight ornithologists, particularly at dawn and dusk.

There are two possible circuits: one short (0.5 kilometres), one longer (1.5 kilometres). For both circuits, start from the car park and follow the trail into the fern-filled gully. At the major intersection veer left and follow the trail along to the next junction.

For the shorter circuit, head right and follow the path as it crosses Leary Creek twice before arriving back at the car park. For the longer circuit, continue left from the junction and deeper into the gully before rejoining the shorter loop and returning to the car park.
