Getting There

Access from Andrew Street, Ford Road or the Midland Highway, Pontville Bridge.

A nice easy walk along the Jordan River. The track begins near Andrew Street and heads north along the left bank of the Jordan. The track takes you to the ford across the Jordan at Ford Road. Ducks and other bird life can be seen along the track. The track follows a footpath from the ford to the Midland Highway. On the other side of the highway the gravel track begins again and heads past the sports ground, equestrian centre and continues along the river to Hartley Court. There are some beautiful spots along the walk and a detour into the Pontville Historic Precinct is well worthwhile.
