  1. A Beautiful and Peaceful Walk

    I loved this walk! Very easy and definitely relaxing! I especially enjoyed seeing the bird hide and having a look across Cabbage Tree Creek to the Shorncliffe Marina. The Environment Centre facilities are very good. Clean and well stocked with maps for other walks. I’ll definitely be returning and I’m looking forward to walking the long trail.

  2. So much to see!

    If butterflies and birds excite you, then this is a trail you’ll LOVE!

    A great, achievable walk for the whole family with wide sturdy paths for prams and wheel chairs. I loved that this trail has very distinct sections of vegetation around the entire track.

    Snagged some peace and quiet in the shade of the birdhide overlooking Cabbage Tree Creek and tried my hand at some basic photography while I was there. Saw a few jumping fish which was a hilarious surprise.

    I really enjoyed seeing the Nurri Millen Indigenous Art Totems scattered throughout the walk and happened to pick up a printed brochure from the Education Centre which is filled with excellent information including correct language terms, definitions and a few comments about features or markings on the totems and what they represent. This aspect of the trail lends itself beautifully to learning Aboriginal history for young and old. (

    Additionally, the Hide’n’Seek Children’s Trail brochure is also a fantastic resource for curious little minds out on an adventure. It includes a map of the trail and information about features of specified site numbers that some absolute legend has taken the time to rhyme! So clever! I would recommend this trail for homeschoolers looking for an accessible excursion day out.

    There’s also a little mini 100m trail (Tulla-yugaipa dhagun track) that leads around to a covered seating area. This little trail has lots of information plaques along the way, plenty of butterfly, bird and insect sitings and a groovy little interactive speaker that requires hand-cranking to power it on – great for busy, curious hands!

    And, as if all of the above is not enough – there is plenty of well-signed onsite parking. 🙂
