Starting from the car park off Sherwood Road, Rocklea, this return walk explores the Oxley Creek Common area via a well-maintained creekside track, visiting the bird-rich Pelican Island viewpoint with a side trip. This relaxing stroll makes for an exquisite Sunday trip for the whole family. Expect scenic undulating tracks where dogs are allowed and lots of animals for your kids to see, such as cows, goats and sheep along with lots of birds. Take the side trip to view the Pelican Island up close and watch for birds. You’ll probably come across birdwatchers studying and trying to spot various bird species such as Glossy ibises, Willie wagtails, quails and raptors. Notice the huge hoop pines as you go through the diverse vegetation. The track is also open to bicycles, so keep a close eye on your kids just in case. The track is quite popular and therefore busy, so come early or on a weekday to avoid the crowd. 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.
