The Girrakool Loop – Part 1

We discovered a new little walk not too far from Umina – the Girrakool Loop. It’s in the Brisbane Waters National park near Kariong, very close to the freeway, but so well-hidden that only the locals know of this spot.

There is a picnic area and car park at the start of the track, so the walk might be a good way to start/end a day out.

The track winds its way through the bush, across rock platforms with mature grass trees.

And under great Sydney Red Gums.

It was shedding time, so the scribbly trunks were well exposed on some trees.

While on other trees the blood-coloured sap was flowing.
