circuit

↑ 40 m
↓ -40 m

Moderate track
An excellent loop walk through areas of beautiful Sydney Redgums. In several places these twisted trees lean over the track, creating great scenery and atmosphere. Two lookout platforms along the way provide some fantastic views over the surrounding areas and Tuggerah Lake. Much of the walk is on sandy tracks. Let us begin by acknowledging the Darkinjung & Guringai people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
