Gibberagong walking track is a 8.3km, grade 3 Return hike located in the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, NSW. The hike should take approximately 4hrs to complete.
A pleasant bush track leading to a scenic waterhole, Gibberagong walking track is an ideal nature day trip for the adventurous bushwalker. The moderate walking track starts at Bobbin Head in the southern section of Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park. Taking in unique saltwater wetlands, it’s ideal for wildlife-spotting and birdwatching.
Following Cockle Creek, you’ll reach an easy boardwalk, where grey saltwater mangroves grow in the brackish waters. Beneath your feet, a whole watery ecosystem thrives, with plankton, crabs and shellfish. You’re more likely to see wading birds like herons, spoonbills and ibises looking for snacks. You might even glimpse an azure kingfisher darting amongst the mangroves.
The track winds through the bush, crossing the creek several times before arriving at a large waterhole. Enjoy a leisurely picnic before heading back, or hold out for an indulgent lunch at one of the delicious eateries at Bobbin Head.
