Moderate track
Starting from the Chambers Gully car park just off Waterfall Gully Road, Burnside, this walk takes you on a circuit within Chambers Gully Park via the Chambers Gully, Bartrill Spur and Long Ridge tracks. Enjoy meandering through the cool sanctuary of Chambers Gully on this walk. Keep a lookout for koalas, kangaroos, cockatoos, echidnas and bandicoots as you follow the track fringed with ferns. A steep climb winds up to a ridge, where splendid views of the city and coast are revealed. The terrain is varied, with some tracks that are wide and flat, and others that are narrow and uneven. 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.
