Easy track
A part of Murrumbidgee Discovery Track, this walk takes you from Pine Island Road, Greenway to Point Hut Crossing Carpark, exploring the riverside of Murrumbidgee River. This relaxing hike can be a great way to connect with yourself and nature, as you listen to the burbling sound of water and birdsong in harmony. Step away from the city life and have a riverside picnic, or even go canoeing if you feel like it. Albeit just the lovely views over the river are enough to make this a worthwhile experience. Keep in mind that this walk can also be done in reverse. No trash bins are present in the area, so you need to take your rubbish with you. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
