Whale Rock Circuit Walk

Thursday 30 March, 9am - 12.30pm

Rock Eye by Hamid Jahanian

This interesting walk in the upper section of Lane Cove National Park showcases a rich variety of flora and fauna as it crosses Byles Creek and Devlins Creek.

The sandstone ridge is particularly rich in heath and woodland plant species, while there is abundant bird life throughout the entire walk. Species include honeyeaters, wattlebirds, wrens and possibly even a roosting Powerful Owl.

If it’s rained recently bring a dry pair of socks as the creek crossings can be wet.

Look out for the 'eye' of whale rock, which is formed by the weathering of concentric banding in the sandstone.
