Moderate track
This pleasant loop walk circumnavigates the Yeramba Lagoon, following a series of small bush tracks that undulate along the side of the hills in the surrounding area. The Yeramba Lagoon is a great spot for bird watchers, and is a home to more than 100 species of birds. Let us begin by acknowledging the Darug people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Turn by turn instructions & maps
Getting started
From the car park, this walk heads across the grass, keeping the lagoon on the left. Soon the walk heads down a short set of rock steps to the bush track which it follows. The track crosses a short wooden bridge and heads up the rocky hill, until flattening out and coming to the birdwatchers observatory frame (looks a bit like monkey bars).....
