Smooth & flat
Starting from the small car park at the intersection of Lady Game Dr & Grosvenor Rd, Lindfield, this lovely boardwalk leads you through the tall Blue Gum forest beside a pleasant small creek. For most of the walk, you are unaware of the nearby roads. Gaze up at the towering trees and sit to enjoy the creek as it slowly meanders along the valley floor. There is a long bench seat partway through, and the boardwalk widens in areas to allow easy passing and space to enjoy the lush natural bushland. The end of the boardwalk loops around a sculpture designed to provide habitat for microbats; you can learn more about these amazing creatures with the signs along the way before turning around to return to the car park. Let us begin by acknowledging the Darramuragal people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
