Wingham Brush boardwalk is a 1.9km, grade 2 Return hike located in the Wingham Brush Nature Reserve, NSW. The hike should take approximately 30mins to complete.
Wingham Brush boardwalk and nearby walking tracks provide a gateway from which to discover the incredible world of plants, birds and flying foxes in the rainforest. The wheelchair friendly boardwalk is suitable for all ages, and connects with Graham Allen and Regenerators walking tracks.
Continue along Flying Fox circuit and you’ll find yourself standing directly under the flying foxes’ roosting site. Learn something new from the signage along the way, or just admire the gigantic Moreton Bay fig, stinging, and white cedar trees. Keep your eyes out for land mullets and brush turkeys in the undergrowth and listen for the distinct calls of the green catbird and wompoo fruit-dove.
Why not pack a picnic, make a day of it and enjoy picnicking, swimming and fishing at the adjacent Wingham River Park? Then, sit by the banks of the river and watch the flying foxes flying out at sunset.
