Guided Walk: Terrys Creek and Browns Waterhole
Join us as we walk along Terrys Creek and visit Browns Waterhole. This peaceful walk makes its way through remnant bushland, and features some closed forest and sandstone heath.
The trail takes you through Blue High Gum Forest. Canopy trees include Sydney Blue Gum, Turpentine and Blackbutt, and the Red Gum Trees found on the walk are important habitat trees for many bird species, as well as possums and bats. Eastern Water Dragons can also be found sunbathing on rocks and swimming in the water.
Terrys Creek eventually widens into Browns Waterhole, which features a waterfall and was once a popular swimming spot. This walk is a great way to experience some beautiful natural surrounds without having to leave our local suburbs.
Meeting Point: At the corner of Crimea Rd and Pembroke Rd (do not confuse with Pembroke St, Epping), Marsfield. Please arrive by 10:15am. The walk will commence and conclude at the same location.
- Medium grade walk suitable for adults and families with primary school or high school aged children who are competent walkers.
