Currie Rd Track

1 hr 30 mins

4.5 km Return

145 m

Hard track
This nice walk explores some of the service trails at the northern end of Bantry Bay, in Garigal National Park. This walk is a great way to see many wildflowers, and some wildlife, of the area. The side trip to the Natural Bridge is worth the effort to see this interesting rock formation. Most of the walk is fairly flat with the exception of the last few meters to the waters edge where the track is quite rough. There is an option to exit at Cook St, just near a bus stop.
