This isn't a particularly special walk, but is a nice way to see different heath environments. The walk follows an old road which has now been turned into a service trail. There are many wildflowers and banksia along this walk, providing great flower displays in the warmer months of the year. Let us begin by acknowledging the Dharawal people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Track Notes
Turn by turn instructions & maps
Getting started
From the southernmost 'Wises Track' sign on Sir Bertram Stevens Drive (sign to the left of the gate)(NOTE:this sign has been reported as missing by another walker), this walk heads away from the road and around the gate. The trail passes through the low heath to turn right after approximately 30m. After a short time more, the walk reaches a rocky outcrop (on the left) where it turns right, heading down the hill. The trail descends for some time to a clearing on the right, after which the trail heads steeply downhill, turning left. At the bottom of the rocky hill, the walk continues to the unsignposted intersection.....
