Roxburgh Area

No matter the season there’s always a reason to take a walk of discovery in and around Roxburgh and the Teviot Valley.

The Roxburgh area has a rich gold mining history, the remnants of which can be discovered and explored on foot. Nowadays orcharding and farming are the dominant industries in this rich and fertile valley and there are walks that showcase brilliantly the natural patchwork and seasonal colours reflected in the many thousands of fruit trees.

Roxburgh Town and River Track

Before setting out on the Town and River Track, an easy one hour walk, grab yourself a map from the information centre so you can identify Roxburgh buildings of historical interest.

Bullock Track

The Bullock Track is a challenging five hour return hill loop track that rewards walkers with stunning and colour-charged views of the Teviot Valley, especially during Spring and Autumn.

Commissioners Track

Grovers Hill
