“I’m so lucky to have this walk at the end of my street. I try to do it a few times a week to keep me fit as a fiddle.”
Wolli Creek walking track is a 2.5km section of the Two Valley trail, linking Campsie to Bexley North via a riverside trail that passes through Canterbury, Undercliffe and Bardwell Park. The park is a very special area, forming a vital vegetation corridor that assists native plants to survive because of its dense bush habitat for the insects and birds that pollinate the plants.
If you live in the local area, this short track is great for a brisk morning walk. Early morning and dusk are good times to spot the local wildlife; look for Australian pelicans hunting for fish, egrets with their long necks and tawny frogmouths camouflaged in the trees.
If you don’t live in the area, you can easily access this peaceful walk from one of the train stations along the route, including Turella, Bardwell Park, and Bexley North. The longer Two Valley trail can be accessed from a number of points along its 13km.
