North Head walking track is a 0.7km, grade 2 Return hike located in the Brunswick Heads Nature Reserve, NSW. The hike should take approximately 30mins to complete.
It’s a short, easy stroll on North Head walking track from the carpark down through a lovely section of endangered littoral rainforest to the mouth of Brunswick River. Tear yourself away from scenic ocean views and head down this trail for a change of scenery. You may spot a goanna along the way, or a harmless carpet python.
For birdwatchers, there are plenty of feathered friends to feast your eyes upon as you walk, such as rainbow bee-eaters. As the name suggests, these birds are brilliantly marked and, although they will eat all sorts of insects, particularly relish a good bee and are immune to the sting. Keep an eye out for this multi-coloured beauty during the warmer months and have your binoculars handy.
Two other short tracks also lead from North Head carpark to the ocean beach and to mangrove-lined Marshalls Creek.
