Walking the Trail
The Two Valley Trail is quite easy to follow and in the Wolli Valley bushland is marked by indicator posts. You can download a copy of a leaflet about the Trail, with a map of the route.
Guided Walks along various sections of the Trail are available. For information on these contact the Wolli Creek Preservation Society and Riverlife Interpretive Tours.
For information about guided walks by volunteers in the Wolli Valley go to www.wollicreek.org.au/activities.html
Information about guided walks by RiverLife Tour volunteers can be found at www.marrickville.nsw.gov.au/environment/riverlife.htm
Food and Drinks along the Trail
One way to walk the Two Valley Trail is to aim for a coffee shop or other source of refreshment in the middle or at the end – or maybe meet friends there at the beginning of your walk. So here’s a preliminary list of possible places to go – other suggestions are welcome, email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Some are small and might have problems catering for a large walking group, but get in touch and check them out. Most are close to the Two Valley Trail route.
