1. The Loo-Errn Track via Tidal River Footbridge 1km Return – 30 Mins

This is a super easy walk along the banks of Tidal River via the Tidal River Footbridge, a curved boardwalk bridge which takes you from one side of the shore to the other.

The walk, which starts at Tidal River visitors centre has been designed for people with limited mobility and it’s also great for young kids and push-chairs.

This walk provides an opportunity to see the river up close, which is a deep ‘black tea’ colour because it’s been dyed by the abundance of tea trees in the area.
