River Heritage Circuit
Meandering along the scenic Parramatta River, this circuit takes in the naval heritage precinct Newington Amory and neighbouring woodlands. The trail continues through wetlands - home to frog and bird habitats - passing by the green community of Newington, the former athletes village of the Sydney 2000 Games. To finish on a high, rise to the challenge and climb one of the wonderful vantage points. Follow the gentle rise to the top of Wool-la-ra or ride up the spiral trail of the Haslam’s Creek Marker. Both with panoramic views of the entire Park and city skyline – it’s well worth the effort!
A must see for nature lovers, this circuit begins in the tranquil atmosphere of Bicentennial Park. Ride around the edge of picturesque Lake Belvedere and take advantage of fabulous bbq, picnic facilities and kids learn to ride loops. The trail continues out to the Badu Mangroves boardwalk showcasing this amazing marine ecosystem. Ride on to the Bird Hide and Waterbird Refuge - a highlight for bird-lovers and look out for the historic ship wrecks which now rest in the bay.
