• Cycling & Walking

Ever heard of the Pon Pon Swamp? Probably not, and that’s because it’s a hidden gem lying just beyond the thin strip of houses lining the Loddon Valley Highway at Serpentine. The Pon Pon harbours a rich trove of plants, animals and Aboriginal heritage and is easily explored on foot. Allow at least 20 minutes to complete the loop but be prepared to spend longer to properly enjoy this fascinating ‘ark’ of natural heritage.

There are lots of beautiful sites to discover on the walking and cycling tracks of the Loddon Valley. Some, like the Pon Pon, are quick and easy for the whole family. Others beckon more serious walkers and cyclists to set their own pace to see the region.

Choose your own adventure and discover the likes of the Nardoo Creek in Wedderburn, the historic cemetery at Tarnagulla and the Loddon River at Bridgewater – pack your togs for the latter in summer, as the trail passes by the swimming hole. 

Tracks and trails for walking, cycling and horse riding are located in Boort, Bridgewater, Inglewood, Laanecoorie, Pyramid Hill, Serpentine, Tarnagulla and Wedderburn.
