Easy track
Starting from the car park off Wyampa Road, Bald Hills, this walk takes you on a little circuit in the Tinchi Tamba Wetlands Reserve via a mixture of boardwalk and dirt tracks. Get ready for an undemanding and scenic stroll through the mangroves and succulent plants. Starting off with a nice picnic area that could serve you well after the hike, you’ll then be walking along Pine River where you can spot heaps of bird species. Keep an eye out for the fellow kangaroos chilling around as well. This track in general is quite family friendly with its flat surface and well-placed signposts. As a plus, you can bring your dog along as well, although you need to keep him/her on a leash at all times. A pro tip: Try to schedule the walk on a bit of a windy day to reduce the amount of mozzies(mosquitoes), but bring insect repellent regardless of the weather since it’s a wetland after all. 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.
