Getting there:

Flights from Brisbane and Sydney. From Burnt Pine Township roundabout, take Taylors Road west and then Douglas Drive past the airport, before turning left into Headstone Road at the churches. Follow this to the Homestead Restaurant and the huge Moreton Bay Fig trees, where there is parking on your left, opposite is the entrance to the Reserve.

Maps:

None found.

Route/Trail notes:

Through the gated entrance, follow the main path for 150m, before heading left across the top of the grassed clearing. From here, you pick up the southerly track that takes you out to Rocky Point Lookout, looping back on the northern track back to the start.

Permits/Costs:

None.

Other References/Comments:

The GPS track posted is accurate, but unfortunately for some reason, the elevations are way out.

With no snakes to watch out for, keep your eyes peeled for the prolific bird life. Not sure what bird it is (visual or sound), then download the free 'Norfolk Islands Birds' app produced by National Parks. Could it be the elusive and endangered Green Parrot of which there are only 200 left?

Comments

Didn't Winnie-the-Pooh live in Hundred Acre Wood; never saw him. Last walk of the trip and I have clocked up seven new walks and did one twice as it was so magnificent (Bridle Track to Bird Rock), for a total distance of 25km and have seen over 80% of the birds features on the NP app.
