Hominy Creek Walking Track I 5.5km loop I Popran National Park
This five-kilometre circuit is a relaxing and tranquil respite from the stresses of daily life. Nestled under eucalyptus trees, the trail is accessed via the Ironbark Picnic Area and stretches off the Mount Olive Trail. After sweating it up, cool down in the Emerald Pool at the end of the track – we deserve it!
