Time Out says

Bellbird Grove is part of the D'Aguilar National Park, 16 klicks west of the CBD. The Turrbal Circuit meanders 1.7km through a pretty eucalypt forest and along a quiet rocky creek. The circuit is named after the Turrbal tribe, the original custodians of this land, and this leisurely walk passes through dense vegetation and crosses Cedar Creek several times via little bridges and spillways. The track is mostly dirt and gravel but it’s shady and family friendly – we chuckled at several little kids getting wet exploring the rocky creek. You can easily extend your walk as the Golden Boulder trail connects with the Turrbal Circuit along the creek. History buffs will dig the 1.8km Golden Boulder track which passes the signposted remains of goldmines dating back to 1860 and a reconstructed miners' shanty hut.

Bellbird Grove has good birdwatching opportunities as honeyeaters, whipbirds, cockatoos and even wedge-tailed eagles frequent the valley. We were astounded by the deafening cicadas along the Turrbal circuit – 85 decibels according to smart watch! There are great picnic grounds next to the carpark, with toilets, barbecues and plenty of space to run around.
