Jennifer Street boardwalk takes you on an elevated short walk through one of Sydney’s last remaining tracts of the eastern suburbs banksia scrub – an endangered plant community unique to the Sydney Basin.

The wheelchair-accessible track begins at Jennifer Street and continues through to Cape Banks Road. It follows a gently sloping downhill course with timber benches along the way. In spring the bush bursts into a breathtaking display of wildflowers.

Lining the boardwalk are angophoras, grass trees, Sydney peppermint and grey gums. Many of these plants were once found in abundance in the coastal areas of Sydney between North Head and Botany Bay but now only remnants remain. This walk gives you a glimpse of what the entire area would have once looked like.

Before heading back, stop for a rest on the bench and see if you can spot rainbow lorikeets, new holland honeyeaters or the spangled drongo in the trees above.
