Starting from the end of Weatherburn Place, Bruce, this circuit walk gives you a tour of Gossan Hills Nature Reserve, visiting the hills and creeks. The reddish stones you can spot all around the site are linked to the molten crust of the earth, formed in the Silurian Period(around 420 million years ago). For your information, a gossan is an intensely oxidised, decomposed form of rock exposing an ore deposit or mineral vein beneath it. The word also means iron hat in Cornish. Hiking through these historic rocks, you’ll probably run into groups of kangaroos chilling and socializing in nature. The walk can become an entirely different, mysterious journey if you’re there when the fog sets in. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
