Whether you’re in the thick of the school holidays, or looking to break up the weekend, there’s always a need for some nearby outdoor places to explore. If you’re looking for a local place that is perfect for kids, easily accessible and has plenty of walking tracks waiting for you to discover, then head to Garigal National Park.
Manuwi Track bushwalk in Garigal National Park is the perfect bushwalk for children. Garigal National Park offers easy and accessible bushwalks for all kinds of hikers. This includes beautiful scenic walks with breathtaking views that are even possible with prams, for those in wheelchairs or for older people.
Garigal National Park is a protected national park that is located within the North Shore and Forest District regions of Sydney. You’ll find the Manuwi Track bushwalk inside, located at the end of Wellington Road, East Lindfield. It’s possibly one of the shortest tracks we have ever been on, but it’s already a new favourite!
Accessing the trail is simple. There’s loads of free street parking on Wellington Road and then it’s just a short walk (or push of the pram!) on to the trail. The track-trail is just a short 1.6km, overlooking the lake at Davidson Park.
The easy 1.6km walk is the perfect spot to wander through greenery and just breathe in some lovely fresh air. Once on the track, you’ll be instantly mesmerised by blue skies showing through the trees on clear days, the touch of a light breeze and the sun shining overhead. I never wanted to leave!
If you’re feeling more adventurous and you’re able, you could try one of the many other tracks branching off from Manuwi Track, such as:
- Two Creeks Track
- Little Digger Track
- The track toward Echo Point Park
For those areas, you’ll encounter harder walks and stairs for an added challenge. We were content staying on the easier track, so you might be too!
