|The Ridge Track Loop|
This circuit walk follows the well signposted Ridge Track as it winds up through the bush between Henry Lawson Drive and the Georges River. The walk starts at Morgans Creek picnic area and heads back down to the river at Cattle Duffers Flats, then loops back to the start along the driveway. This walk is a great way to explore the diverse plants, and views of the park. (open in app)
