Hard track
Starting from the car park on Pimpala Road, Cockatoo Valley, this circuit walk takes you around the perimeter of Sandy Creek Conservation Park via the Honeyeater Link and Boundary tracks. This walk starts along the Honeyeater Link Track and then follows a wide fire trail around the park's perimeter. The sandy land is home to the rarest plants of the valley. The terrain undulates gently, and the trails are flat and well maintained, making this an easy walk. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
