Nice easy walk with the dog. Loads of people about.

Very well signed tracks throughout the park - would be quite hard to get lost.

A surprising walk with views that are outstanding considering the close proximity to built up suburbs close by.

Beautiful walk! Went with my friend, her child, my partner and all of our dogs.
The views were spectacular. We went early before the rush and it was very serene.

Pleasant arvo walk. A bit of a view from The Rocks.

Pleasant walk, interesting rock formations along the way. Very dry and not a lot of shade, so make sure you take plenty of water and sunscreen. Recommend taking a map of the area, available at the Discovery Centre or online, as there are many trails and it could get confusing, even with the signage.

One of our favourite local family walks. Kids enjoy it. Stairs along the walk but not too challenging for reasonable fitness.

Nice walk, with a beautiful park and playground area, great for a picnic after your walk

Karawatha Forest is another park that is in my area . The Rocks circuit is a great walk suitable for those with moderate fitness. All walks are well signed.

Not too much to see but be on the look out for Koalas and other wildlife. This area is well signed. The boulder section would be a nice place for a picnic.

Nice spot for a picnic when entering from Acacia Road. The rocks walk offers a nice spot at the top near the water towers with a seat & cover.
As there are many trails through this area a map is a good idea.
