Take about 45 minutes for this easy and scenic 2km bushwalk along Astills trail. This loop walk begins and ends near Astills picnic area, so you can make a day of it and pack a picnic lunch.

Astills trail takes you through important habitat for rare and threatened birds. Local families love the fresh air and greenery which thrives on their doorstep, but bushwalkers and birdwatchers from all over NSW make the journey too. Don’t be put off by the Grade 5 for not having directional signage, you’ll still find this an easy track for all ages.

Some of the birds you’ll spot in the canopy include square-tailed kites and, at night, barking owls and masked owls. Meanwhile, your other friends along this walk will be brown tree creepers, speckled warblers, black-chinned honeyeaters and grey-crowned babblers, so it’s a great place to introduce kids to lots of new birds.
