To build up an appetite or to walk your food off afterwards, take a stroll along Wingecarribee River walking track, which begins and ends at Cecil Hoskins picnic area. The track is a short easy walk that's flat with few obstacles and no stairs, so it's ideal for all age groups.
The track takes you west along the river past Bong Bong weir, then loops back through regenerating forest on Wingecarribee floodplain. You'll see various types of eucalypts as you follow this walking track, including the less well-known gums, like snow, swamp, black sallee and manna eucalypt trees.
Keep your binoculars in easy reach for birdwatching. Through the forest, you may see woodland birds such as white-throated needletails, welcome swallows and spotted pardalote. Eastern grey kangaroos also inhabit the forest. And did you know you can find platypus shyly hiding in the lagoon?
