Length: 6.1 mi • Est. 2 h 27 m
Note: As of August 21, 2020, users have reported that part of the Iron Creek walking area is closed for maintenance cutting it a little shorter. This is a great circuit for those looking for some exercise. It's a paved path used by runners, cyclists, and everything in between. You won't find isolation here, but if you're looking for an easy exercise track, this is your spot. Accessibility: The trail surface is paved and typically at least six feet wide. It has some steep areas where the estimated grade is above 8% so wheelchair and stroller users may need assistance. Users have reported the steepest section is the hill up to Iron Cove Bridge.Show more

Length: 6.8 mi • Est. 3 h 10 m
This iconic Australian walk encircles the base of Uluru (Ayers Rock), a 348 metre high red monolith of sandstone around half a billion years old with a circumference of 9.4km that rises dramatically in the Central Australian desert near Alice Springs. The Anangu Indigenous owners welcome all visitors to the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, which is a living cultural landscape with not only unique and diverse animal and plant life, but shares rich ancient wisdom, memories and creation stories for all to learn how the earth and memories coexist as one, which is still relevant today. The base walk is an opportunity to learn of the stories in the many cave paintings while meandering through acacia woodlands and grassed claypans with bloodwoods, native grasses, and waterholes. The walk is best taken in full, however smaller sections can also be accessed depending on how much time you have, your fitness level and daily weather conditions. Accessibility: The trail surface is mostly dirt/gravel and typically at least four feet wide. The grade is mostly gentle but there are some steep sections with an estimated grade greater than 8% such as near the boardwalk viewpoint and just south of the parking area. It is suggested for equipment users to proceed clockwise as the gentlest grade is on the northern section. The walk is wheelchair and stroller friendly in dry weather only.Show more

Length: 2.3 mi • Est. 1 h 21 m
A man made trail of boardwalks and paved sections. Suitable for prams and wheelchairs, but please be aware that some parts are fairly steep. Minamurra Falls near Jamberoo is an easy day trip from Sydney. Very nice walk with great views of the waterfall at the end. This is a great trail with well maintained tracks and signage! This track can be completed by almost anyone with some steep inclines that my prove difficult for some but the views at the end of the hike are definitely worth the walk. Show more
