Wolli Creek Regional Park

“I love coming down here to volunteer and I’m really proud of what we have achieved so far – a beautiful pocket of bushland that everyone can enjoy.”

Wolli Creek Regional Park is a long sliver of greenery in Sydney’s urban inner southwest; a beautiful gem in the suburbs.

It’s an important place for the local community and the Wolli Creek Preservation Society continues to play an active role in bush regeneration activities. The park conserves a richly varied vegetation corridor along Wolli Creek, providing a home for an astonishing array of birdlife and grey headed flying foxes.

It’s a great place for a morning walk along the Wolli Creek track, part of the longer Two Valley trail via Campsie and Bexley. If you’re looking for a new barbecue spot, try Girrahween picnic area or the nearby Turella Reserve.

Highlights
 

Why you should visit

Wolli Creek Regional Park is a special place, here are just some of the reasons why:

Bird haven
Wolli Creek Regional Park is an important habitat for a variety of birds. Look for comorants and darters as you're walking by the creek and keep an eye out for blue wrens and finches on the edge of the open lawns. In the sky you may catch a glimpse of brown goshawks and peregine falcons on patrol.

Stretch your legs in the city
Just because you live in the city, it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the bush. Go for a run, take a leisurely stroll with the dog or let the kids burn off some energy on the trails and in the play areas. Wander the Wolli Creek walking track with its sandstone cliffs or walk the entire Two Valley trail.

Throw a party
There are several gorgeous spots around Wolli Creek Regional Park to meet family and friends for a barbecue or picnic.  Relax on a rug while the kids play at the playground at Turrella Lawns or enjoy a quiet family picnic in the shade at Girrahween picnic area.
