There are over 18kms of walking tracks on the 300 acre property of Earth & Soul. Most are easy, ambling walks through open forest. Only when you venture into the Cannon Creek Gorge, the Dragon's Backbone, and the Cannon Creek Top Crossing areas do you encounter any rough terrain, subsequently these walks are recommended as guided walks only.
Guests at Earth & Soul Retreat are welcome to explore the property and enjoy the natural environment. Please be mindful of the Track gradings and safety requirements. Guided walks are available to the restricted areas. Contact us at the main home and make arrangements.
The Top of the Gorge and the Dragon's Backbone (Aust. Standard Grade 5) are perhaps the roughest part of the property and the underbrush can get quite dense.
Doro's Hole on the Broadwater (Aust. Standard Grade 3). The lower part of this walk, down towards the Gorge is quite rough and dense. The northern part is open forest and the walks are easy on level ground. There is a ridge of granite that runs through following the line of The Broadwater (Doro's Hole) which is a bit more up and down but still an easy walk for most people. The Cannon Creek Top Crossing (Aust. Standard Grade 4). The area in the Top Crossing is rough but clear. The North West corner of the property is not very accessible. The rest of this quadrant is open forest and the walks are level and easy.
The Tree of Life Spiritual Walk & the Earth & Soul Labyrinth are not bush walks and are designed for spiritual purposes. The paths on the Tree of Life are mowed, natural ground and not compacted. The paths of the Labyrinth are formed, compacted decomposed granite. though not wide enough for wheelchair access.
The Rock (Aust. Standard Grade 5) or what we affectionately call "Our Bald Rock", is on a neighbouring property. We must seek permission from the owner before accessing the property. The walk up and back can be achieved in about 2 hours. We generally drive to the nearest boundary. The walk up the Rock is steep requiring some fitness.
