The Erskine Nature Trail takes walkers on boardwalks over the wetlands. There are numerous viewing platforms as well as a bird hide. The bushland provides plenty of shade and a number of seating alcoves along the way.

Although the path is not sealed, it is well maintained and is suitable for wheelchairs and prams.

This walk is suitable for anytime of the year, but especially nice in late winter and spring when the wildflowers are in bloom.

Great trail for an easy walk that's kid and pet-friendly. Sections on boardwalk accentuate it well.

Marvellous. Tranquil. pet friendly. abundance of flowers in spring. A beautiful migratory path for birds. Len Howard did so well to fight for this to be protected. A must see

Supported by great organisations

Trails are free and bring so many benefits to our community by providing opportunities to have fun, get fit, socialise, explore and challenge yourself. But they also have to be managed and maintained which only is made possible through terrific sponsors, donations and/or volunteering.
