2hours 1km walk

The park is only 1.4km long and there is no set route, so you can easily wander without getting lost.

The boardwalks follow the original creek line, and the trails go up towards the highest point - ‘hero’s hill’ (not an official name). Every track is well signed and named after native plants, animals or birds.

The tracks are all well maintained and safe to explore (always watch out for snakes in Summer).
