Jerusalem Creek walk traces the water’s journey to its connection with the sea. This is an important wetland area for many shorebirds, which roost and nest along the creek banks. Watch out for the pied oystercatcher and beach stone-curlew.
The full circuit is nearly 10.3km, so it makes a nice day walk, but if you’re feeling like a shorter hike, you can take the easier option of starting and finishing from Black Rocks campground.
Make sure you take a picnic or barbecue hamper to enjoy a feast at Booroora picnic area when you’ve finished the walk. Bring the canoe for a paddle along Jerusalem Creek paddle route or pack the tent and stay overnight at Black Rocks campground.
