For a lovely spot to have lunch or laze about under the trees, Bomaderry Creek picnic area is perfect. Surrounded by bushland and yet well-equipped and very easy to get to from the Princes Highway, this former quarry is a lovely place to unroll a picnic blanket and relax, and the starting point for a number of easy gorge walks.

The whole family will find plenty to do here. Your little ones will love the game of stepping stones and the open space to run around. A rainbow serpent mural and clay footprints tell the story of this place’s importance to the local Aboriginal people. Abundant birdlife flies overhead while you enjoy this special place too.

Once you’ve enjoyed a barbecue in the eucalypt trees, stretch your legs along She-Oak crossing walk and explore the Bomaderry Creek Gorge, or head out across the heath on Falcon Crescent link track.
