Not too long, not too short, not to steep, not too flat . Good access and near to Oxford which has a good diner. This is suitable for kids.

There are some steep up and down stairs parts to this track. Also had to climb over fallen down trees and parts of track narrow due to slips. Also very muddy in parts this time of year. Nice drive out and nice picnic spot.

Glentui loop track ; a lovely bush walk through native forest, across a pretty stream , up and down quite steep steps and the odd scramble over rocks. Not suitable for the very young or the very old, but otherwise a charming walk of about an hour with a pretty picnic area at the car park. A perfect family outing for maybe a half day, near to Oxford.

Nice track that takes about an hour and has good views of the waterfall. Also dog friendly if they are on a leash. Needs better signage around the track.

We did part of this track on our way down from Mt Richardson in the last week of August. Currently the tack is muddy in parts so good footwear is recommended.

Certainly not wheelchair or buggy friendly, but a great walk none the less. My 6yo made it most of the way round before the "my legs are sore" started but the promise of a waterfall fixed that.

Leaving from the eastern end of the carpark will give you a descent to begin with and then a rather robust ascent. But after that the walk is reasonably easy going.

Leaving from the western end of the carpark will give you an easier start to the walk as far as the waterfall, but you'll finish with a decent ascent when you get all the way round to the carpark again.

I'd recommend the eastern path.

Any watch for mud. There will be some and yes it's kinda clay-ish and will be slippery. Most spots allow you a way around the mud but you will get your shoes muddy and there is a chance you'll fall down if you're not carefull (or a 6yo who prefers to try and jump across the mud!)

The walk is set for 1 hour but I'd allow an hour and a half to enjoy it properly. There aren't panoramic views from anywhere on the this track but there is certainly a lot to look at along the way.

And pack a picnic or snacks. Getting round the loop and then stopping for a bit of kai is certainly a good way to end the trip. I didn't see any running water so make sure you take enough for the walk and a little extra.

Toilets. There is one. It's not flash. It's a long-drop so if it's a hot day, drop a rock in to clear the flies first. And take your own toilet paper and some sort of hand gel - there is no hand washing facility. If you have a finicky 6yo who doesn't like grotty toilets, take something for them to sit on as well as the seat is functional rather than nice.

We'll go back again as the 6yo certainly enjoyed it and it was a great introduction to bush walks.

A great little bushwalk, wet after the rain so watch your .step. Wear good boots, good view from the picnic area.

Fairly easy pleasant type of walk. Interesting though, with some care needing to be taken in a few spots to avoid falling down the bank. Such a pretty waterfall. A walk worth doing over and over again

Great picnic area and parking, long drive out and last couple of kms on dirt road but well worth it. Several tracks to walk on. We took the easy one to the waterfall as we had a 5 month baby with us.
