Wondrous Walkabout – Lake Toolooma (Heathcote National Park)
We live in one of the greatest tourist destinations on Earth. Yet how much of your backyard have you really uncovered? Come with us to admire parts of Sydney that you might have known of, but never got around to exploring.
Join us on this free and active stream of local bush walks and an appreciation of the best local spots you never dared to find on your own.
This Wondrous Walkabout is Lake Toolooma circuit.
This lovely Sutherland bushwalk may only take a couple of hours to complete, but the wonderful sense of solitude it promotes gives you a real feeling of escape. Lake Toolooma trail leads you through uninterrupted bushland to a scenic secluded dam that offers great birdwatching. Though it can be quite steep at times, the trail, like most of the walks in Heathcote National Park, is easily accessed from Waterfall train station.
Soak up picturesque views including Sydney sandstone vegetation and lovely water glimpses as you hike along this rough track. Keep your eyes peeled for birds like honeyeaters, wattlebirds and delicate fairy wrens.
In spring, the heath erupts with wildflowers, including Gymea lilies, tea trees, grevilleas, waxflowers and banksias. Why not take the camera and get some great photos along the way?
