Jennifer Street Boardwalk Alt = 43 m
Jennifer Boardwalk provides you with an elevated view through a rare and endangered ecological community known as the Eastern Suburbs Banksia Scrub. This community of native plants is protected under the Threatened Species Conservation Act[1]. These Banksia once occupied around 5,300 hectares of land between North Head and Botany Bay in Sydney’s eastern suburbs. Currently, surviving stands totalling approximately 146 hectares have been recorded by the local government areas of Botany, Randwick, Waverley, and Manly [2].

(0 km) Int of Jennifer Street Boardwalk & Jennifer Street to Int of Cape Banks Rd & Jennifer Street Boardwalk
Walk: Easy - duckboard
Length = 375 m Time = 6 mins
Climb = 0 m Descent = -6 m
From the end of Jennifer St (near Marconi Pl), Little Bay[3], this walk follows the concrete footpath between the timber bollards[4] (1.7m gap), past the 'Botany Bay National Park - Jennifer Street Lands' sign[5]. After about 25m, the walk passes the large sheltered 'Eastern Suburbs Banksia Scrub' sign[6] shelter to find a timber seat[fac=8249].
The timber boardwalk leads gently downhill through the dense heath[7] for about 160m to pass the fenced 'revegetation area'[8]. The boardwalk continues to lead through the forest with the occasional water glimpses for another 80m where the path starts to lead moderately steeply downhill[9][fac=8250] for about 15m before starting to mostly level out again. At the end of the timber boarwalk[10], the walk follows the concrete path to find another timber seat[fac=8251]. From here the walk continues along the footpath for 35m to pass the 'Jennifer Street Boardwalk' sign[11], head through the narow timber bollards[fac=8252] and come to Cape Banks Rd, La Perouse next to the golf course.
