Facilities

This is a wonderfully varied oasis in the middle of suburbia, where you can go for an easy walk around one of several extremely well maintained gravel tracks, see wetland flora & fauna, roam through a gum forest, read beautiful information boards about the ecology and history of the area, exercise the dogs and let the children run safely.

There is a large, specially designated carpark accessed directly from Abbotts Way and there are also a few points along the track that can be accessed from Grand Drive. Being a favourite place for our canine family members to have a wonderful run around, there is a covered box on a pole, for people to put spare poop bags, located at the start of the track in the carpark.

Tad muddy, and uneven ground(rocks) in places, so wear appropriate footwear. Great place for a quick easy stroll and bring your dog.

Off track walks are pretty muddy. Wear suitable shoes. Or stick to the track.

Nice walk to take my toddler. I wouldn’t say it’s completely stroller friendly though. We did struggle a bit to push the stroller through the rocky pathway.
