Badu Mangrove Boardwalk
Stroll the winding timber boardwalk in Bicentennial Park and you'll discover surviving riverside wetlands that shelter colourful waterbirds plus the largest mangrove forest remaining on the Parramatta River. Take time to imagine the days when the whole river was edged with this diverse and productive habitat.

Brickpit Ring Walk
High above the unique geological formation of the Brickpit, you can take the award-winning circular Ring Walk to view the protected habitat of the endangered Green and Golden Bell Frog.

Riverside walks
Start at the gates to Newington Armory for a return circuit alongside the Parramatta River, Newington Nature Reserve, the historic Armory wharf and finish atop the lookout at Blaxland Riverside Park. Or checkout the Narawang Wetland and the ecologically repaired Haslam's Creek, climbing the Pyramid and Kronos Hill, with a final challenging rise to Woo-la-ra lookout for river and city vistas.
