Avid birdwatchers will love Burbie Canyon walking track, which offers a gentle 2km stroll past a creek and through a narrow sandstone gorge. Indeed, the birdlife is so varied here, you can't help but go birdwatching, trying to spot peregrine falcons nesting in hollows of the rock-face, or rare turquoise parrots darting overhead. This is a terrific track for families and kids as well. Though Burbie Canyon walking track is good to visit at any time of year, spring is particularly beautiful, surrounded by an abundance of wildflowers like the common parrot pea, guinea flower, and five corners, a popular bushfood. Bring the camera and enjoy the stunning ambience of the native forest. This is also a great place to see swamp and red-necked wallabies, and, if you're particularly lucky, you may even spy a koala dozing in a eucalyptus tree.
