You want to explore your local reserve and you’ve heard a lot about this waterfall in Hunts Creek Reserve, hey?
However you know better than to go wondering in the bush alone with no idea where to go or how to get to the waterfall because you could end up stuck in there with no food for days.
Well, not really. The walk is way too short for that. It’s very very unlikely that will happen.
You would like to know how to get there though, where to start, if the track is easy, how long it will take.
You’ve come to the right place. If you are looking for a longer track that goes a little further away from the site of any homes then check out Bidjigal Reserve here.
Hunts Creek Reserve And How To Get To The Waterfall
Hunts Creek Reserve is located in Carlingford/North Rocks and even if you start at the furthest point away from the waterfall it is still a fairly short walk in and out.
First of all, there are a number of starting points that you need to be aware of so you can choose the right one for you. This is the best PDF resource I found out of all the maps available online.
We started on Parkland Road, Carlingford. Which you can easily view on Google Maps here. The signage to join the track as ‘Hunts Creek Reserve’ from this entrance is not clear however the track is. If you are joining from some of the other starting points such as starting at the end of Norfolk Place, North Rocks, the signage is very obvious.
This is the furthest point from the waterfall and in total took us about 45 minutes there and back and this includes about 10 – 15 minutes spent at the waterfall. The track was approximately 2.5km long. You can easily start from any other point however if you want to meet the recommended daily exercise for the adult population then you should start here.
The track has wooden posts along the way with waterfall imagery on them so you can know you are heading in the right direction and also has larger posts wiht information about the reserve and the wildlife within the reserve.
The track is a shared walk and cycleway so you can easily take mountain bikes, or a sturdy pram with you on the walk. It also comes in an out of residential area and does not venture too deep into the bush.
I recommend you download the Tracks and Trails PDF before your walk. If you are looking for more of a bush track then you can follow the green line on the map which includes various other start points. This will also allow you to choose a start point that is closer to you or if you live in the area you could easily walk to join the track from your home.
