Whether you prefer a gentle stroll around the town to view Buninyong's historic buildings and parks, or more strenuous walks up and down the numerous volcanic cones, there are several inviting paths to take.

Walks Around Buninyong & District

Mt InnesWalks Around Buninyong & District features local walks and provides plenty of support information.

It has a detailed Summary Sheet, Walking Notes, Background Information on points of interest, and a downloadable Georeferenced Map for each walk. The website also allows for walkers to contribute photos and data concerning birds and plants identified along the walk.

The Buninyong Bird Park Circuit is the first walk that has been fully developed but many other walks are planned for the website. Walkers' feedback is welcomed. The funding for the development of the initial pages and map was provided by the Ballarat City Council through its 2011 Community Grants Program.
