Wetlands and WoodlandsEvery day
Sydney Olympic Park is an urban oasis for both wildlife and people, connecting us with nature, and with ourselves, through beautiful landscapes and inspiring encounters with wildlife. Explore the 35 km of bike trails, walking paths and scenic boardwalks within the Park through 430 hectares of wetlands, woodlands and parks.
Why not explore the Park today? Not only will it feel good, it will be good for you too! Here are some suggestions:
Frog Walk - Healthy frogs are an indicator of healthy ecosystems. The Frog Walk takes you to frog ponds, frog underpasses and even frog fencing at Wentworth Common and Kronos Hill. You’ll also stroll the Brickpit Ring Walk for a bird’s eye view of the most significant habitat for the endangered Green and Golden Bell Frog, with interpretive material to learn about the management of our seven frog species.
Narawang Wetland - Meander along walking paths and a reed-fringed boardwalk to observe the habitat that supports a colony of the endangered Green and Golden Bell frogs and other frog species.
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.
Riverside walks - Start at the gates to Newington Armory for a circuit alongside the Parramatta River, Newington Nature Reserve, the historic Armory wharf and finish atop the lookout at Blaxland Riverside Park.
We are improving the pathway through Badu Mangroves by raising bridge to allow for rising tides. The bridge will be closed from early January to late March 2017. Alternative routes are available for both pedestrians and cyclists.
