Pump some iron or tackle the treadmill at Jamestown’s well-equipped community gymnasium.
Access is available 24-7 by purchasing a short term membership from the Northern Areas Council office, 94 Ayr St Jamestown, during working hours.
If you want a gentle walk, stroll along the Belalie Creek. If you are more of a power walker, take to the Jacka Creek Walking Trail, a 2 km linear trail that snakes along the western edge of Jamestown. The tree-lined trail is pram and wheelchair-friendly, and ideal for youngsters on pushbikes. Or head out to Bundaleer Forest, where you can choose to amble along the Maple Walk or step up the intensity on the Conservators Walk and the Panoramic Walk. These walks all start from the picnic grounds off Springs Road, Bundaleer.
While in Jamestown why not hire a bike and see what the town has to offer at a leisurely pace?
Or if you’re after something a little more adventurous, make a day of it, pack a picnic and take on one of Jamestown’s cycling trails, either north to Mannanarie or south to Bundaleer.
Bundaleer Forest is also ideal for orienteering, rogaining (the sport of long distance cross-country navigation), geo-caching, bird watching, horse riding and exploring flora and fauna and photography.
Most days you’ll see kangaroos and euros, and sometimes an echidna. Listen for kookaburras and spot a brightly coloured Mallee Ringneck.
Whether you like a gentle stroll, invigorating hike or pushing pedals
you’ll find a trail that suits you.
The whole family will enjoy the gentle Maple Walk and the interactive Sculpture Walk.
For the more adventurous try the Scenic and Conservator’s Trails which take around 1.5 hours.
