Biodiversity Month Walks in the Wolli Creek Valley

This spring the Wolli Creek Preservation Society is partnering with Canterbury Bankstown Council to host two walks in the Wolli Creek Valley.

Wolli Creek Valley – Full Track Walk – Sunday 22 September 2019 – 8:00 am – 12:30 pm

This will be a 5km walk through bushland, parkland and riverside from Bexley North to Tempe via the Wolli and Cooks River Valleys. The walk will showcase some of the best preserved bushland in the local area, highlighting sandstone cliffs, tall gum trees, river views and birdlife.

This is a medium-hard walk with some sections of the trail covering uneven ground with a distance of 5km.

Bookings are required and all children under 18 years must be accompanied by an adult.

Bookings are available through Eventbrite

Wolli Creek Valley – from Bardwell Park to Tempe – Saturday 26 October – 9.00 am – 12.00 pm

This 3.5km walk will showcase some of the best preserved bushland in the local area, highlighting sandstone cliffs, tall gum trees, river views and birdlife. The Wolli Creek is also home to one of Sydney’s grey headed flying fox colonies, and this walk provides an amazing opportunity to see them in their natural habitat.

This is a medium grade walk with some sections of the trail covering uneven ground.

Bookings are required and all children under 18 years must be accompanied by an adult.

Bookings are available through Eventbrite.

Walking Advice

  • Please advise us before we start of any restrictions on your mobility or anything else we might reasonably need to know to ensure your safety. Please alert us immediately to any accidents or injuries that occur during the walk.
  • The walk is almost entirely on unmade and uneven surfaces. It is mostly level, easy walking however there are some ascents and descents, particularly the rocky walk up and down Nannygoat Hill, but this is optional. You need to wear stout walking boots or shoes, with a good gripping sole – sandals and thongs are absolutely not good enough.
  • The path is overhung by vegetation in places and long trousers and sleeves are advisable to avoid scratches.
  • Please bring plenty of water and a snack.
  • Much of our walk will be well shaded, but a broad-brimmed hat may still be advisable.
  • This is a relatively low-risk walk, but care is always needed and we rely upon your prudence and caution. We also ask you to assist the walk leaders in ensuring the complete safety of the whole group.
