The Bucketts scenic walk takes you up the base of the remarkable Buccan Bucccans mountain range overlooking Gloucester.

The scenic walk is step and challenging in sections but provides ample rewards including panoramic views of the Gloucester valley, a rich array of flowering plants, wildlife and wonderful photo opportunities.

The entrance to the walk is on Bucketts Road just 1km from Thunderbolts Way. Pick up a helpful brochure about this walk from the Gloucester Visitor Information Centre.

Views are magical however it is a very steep and boring walk straight up a grassy hill. I took my 9 year old and he slipped 5 times. Had I known it was that steep I would have picked another walk.

Beautiful scenery and not a long walk however it does get very steep in parts. The Trail runs along the fence not on the dirt track as it looks to begin with

Steep climb but well worth it

Great place for amature hiking. Excellent for kids, they were quite enthusiastic about reaching the top. The views from top are wonderful. The top part of hill is a bit steep so need to be careful in wet weather. It gets quite slippery during wet weather so descend can get challenging.

First time to be in this area and it was amazing. Beautiful hilly area, very nice to drive. It was a short walk to the top but you will be welcome with a very steep hill straight away to climb up. You need a pair of good hiking shoes or shoes with a good grip. Lots of rock climbing on the top and very slippery. Be very careful no railing and pretty much a cliff edge. But once you get on top you get a beautiful 360 view.
