Not maintained, half the art missing.

Really disappointing, given that this trail clearly had some real thought put in in 1993. The signage is better maintained than the art itself. A pleasant walk but nothing more.

I walk in the area some Sundays and came across the Art Trail - very underwhelming hard to see the point of it . The walk and bushland is excellent so worth the visit .

Although this is just a short walk, there is little to see. Half of the art is missing and those that remain are not looked after so are in a state of disrepair. Good for a walk but not the art.

its just called "the art trail" - its a nice walk through the bush - don't get too caught up with the previous reviewers, if you want to see art go to an art gallery, this is more just a cap tip to the Aboriginal people of the area and they are all dedication art pieces, nothing authentic, just enjoy...

The walk was pleasant enough, however, the art trail was extremely neglected, difficult to even find examples. Would recommend removing all the signage to the art trail, as in its current state it is misleading and just sad.

To increase our total kilometres we combined the Art Trail with two other walking tracks in the area and were completely underwhelmed. The walk is a good work out for the legs but even when reading the various signs dotted about we were hard pushed to see any art and the few examples we did notice looked less than authentic....

We decided to do a midweek bushwalk and researched the aboriginal art trail. We decided this would be educational for the kids so set off. The walk is scenic and we extended it to go to the summit, but the art is poor to say the least. 4 signs direct your attention to art, the first was some carving in... More

At the start of the trail there's a sign that says the trail was established in 1993. Unfortunately, it seems that that's the last time anyone actually did any maintenance there. We didn't even see all the "artworks" supposed to be there, or didn't understand what they constituted of. It seemed like there had been a forest fire (some time... More

I love aboriginal art, and was looking forward to the trail. I wouldn't have noticed a lot of the art if not for the signs, and the art we saw was completely underwhelming. A pleasant enough walk, but not enough art to warrant the title of an art trail.

Different than what I expected but was good to enjoy bits of aborginal art. The track is a bit of a trek, very hilly, a few deep steep steps, and a bit rocky. The path hasn't been kept very well, and is a bit narrow. For that reason in my opinion it wouldn't be suitable for small children and any... More
