Bugle Ridge Track
Hattah-Kulkyne National Park
Beginning at the dam wall between Lake Hattah and Lake Little Hattah, the trail heads east along Bugle Ridge and over the northern shores of Lake Bulla and Lake Brockie. Follow the track between Lake Brockie and Lake Tullamook, then head for home below Lake Arawak along the nature drive that fringes magnificent Lake Hattah.
As you return to the camping ground and visitors centre, stop to inspect the old pump house that early this century was used to refill the boilers of steam trains at Hattah railway station. Later, it was used to supply water to Hattah township. Keep an eye out along the track for the region's famous wildlife, including pelicans, wedge-tailed eagles, spoonbills, herons, goannas and kangaroos (red, western grey and eastern grey).
