Starting from Scout Camp Road near Scout Camp campsite this return walk takes you through Glenrock State Conservation Area to Flaggy Creek. You can see the historic Burwood Colliery. There are plenty of options if you want to prolong the walk by joining other trails or looping around the lagoon. Let us begin by acknowledging the Awabakal people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
