Walk | A bushwalk of any kind short or longPhotography | A trip that has a strong focus on encouraging people to capture photographs.(Postponed) (This walk is postponed due to track closure) 11km walking track is near Wisemans Ferry and follows a steep mountain ridge through lush gullies, past clear running creeks in Dharug National Park. This rough track will really get your heart racing with several steep climbs along the way. 11km walking track is an exhilarating challenge for adventure seekers. This beautiful circuit walk goes through a range of dry and wet forest along the valley, and offers some great views. There are plenty of grass trees along the way to add to the scenery and the creek crossings are very picturesque. The side trip to a large Aboriginal engravings site alone is worth the entry price! At this time of the year, there is an abundance of wild flowers. Steep and slippery sections

This is a short Summer walk. A large park and wetland located adjacent to the former Sir Joseph Banks Hotel at 23 Anniversary Street Botany; and originally part of its curtilage. The park was created in 1988 as Botany Bay Council’s major Bicentennial project as an interpretative reconstruction of the Hotel’s famous ‘pleasure gardens’ and a new parkland area of wetlands and lakes formed by the spoil of the reclamation works associated with the expansion of Port Botany. The restoration was designed by landscape architect Bruce Mackenzie using original documentation of the grounds, including maps, illustrations and descriptions, and includes a reconstructed oval, running track, wetlands (including ponds), picnic facilities and a contemporary interpretation of the original zoo, as a playground space with life-sized animal sculptures including bears, tigers, elephants , camels and gorillas; which was sponsored by local manufacturer Kellogs and sculpted by William Rees, a Perth animal portraitist. The park also features other sculptural animals including topiary frames of groups of elephants in the regenerated bushland on the western side of the oval; and thematic gardens, a maze, pergolas, terraces and arbours. The main sculptural feature, apart from the animals, is of Sir Joseph Banks in a pose of heroic discovery. The reclaimed area includes lakes, wetlands and two large picnic/BBQ facilities. https://www.environment.nsw.gov.au/heritageapp/ViewHeritageItemDetails.aspx?ID=1210025 Social Distancing, Mask, Sanitizer Limit: 12.
