Discover south-west Sydney’s diverse natural landscapes on this wonderful bushwalk, near Waterfall. Mooray walking track is a moderate half-day hike ideal for experienced bushwalkers, with sweeping heathland views across Heathcote National Park. 

A favourite among birdwatchers, this signposted track starts via Warrabin Street trail, winding through at times tough terrain, yet rewarding you with glimpses of kingfishers and honeyeaters along the way. You could try to time your walk to coincide with the spring wildflower season; when the banksia, grevillea and hakea erupt with vibrant colours and scent.

Arriving at the end of the track at Heathcote Creek, choose to retrace your steps or head south along Bullawarring walking track and walk back via Kingfisher Pool picnic area for a refreshing swim. Why not make a weekend of it and pitch your tent at Kingfisher Pool campground?
