Starting from the car park off Cherbon Street, Burbank, this walk takes you on a circuit in the northern part of JC TRotter Memorial Park, visiting a picnic area along the way. This track offers you a peaceful and quiet experience with plenty of shade to cover you from the sun. With a nice picnic area, electric BBQs and seats spread along the track, this can make for a great little family trip. You may spot some wallabies, kookaburras and even eagles. After rainfall, the whole feel of the area changes but this can lead to some muddy sections. Keep in mind that there are no toilet facilities in the park. 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.
Before you start any bushwalk ensure you;
• Tell someone you trust where you are going and what to do if you are overdue
• Have adequate equipment, supplies, skills & knowledge for the whole journey
• Consider the impact of weather forecasts, park/track closures & fire dangers
• Can respond to emergencies & call for help at any point
• Are healthy and fit enough for this journey
If not, change plans and stay safe. It is okay to delay and ask people for help.
