Starting from Stanford Road, Boondall, this walk takes you through the Boondall Wetlands via the singular Boondall Wetlands Bikeway, optionally visiting Anne Beasley’s Lookout along the way. This area features heaps of wildlife as migratory and native bird species are known to rest and feed here. Possums, flying foxes, squirrel gliders and various reptiles are also some of the animals you can come across. The paved bikeway/walkway is wide, flat and wheelchair accessible. It’s suitable for both a cardio exercise and a stroll with the kids. As a plus, you’ll be able to bring your dog with you as well. Regardless of the season, remember to take mozzie(mosquito) repellent with you. 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.
