These showcase the rich variety of bushland, parklands, geological features and historical sites of the Castlemaine district.  Many of these are available in the Information Centre, Mostyn Street, Castlemaine and some can be downloaded here. Explore these trails in your own time and use the many resources on this website to help identify the flora and fauna you see on the way.
