A very pleasant and easy stroll discovering this heritage walk which showcases places where early colonial settlers in Baulkham Hills established farms before the end of the 18th Century. We will walk through valleys of tall Blackbutts and a Sydney Turpentine Ironbark Forest (which is now an endangered vegetation community) and then follow the Headwaters of Toongabbie Creek which was the earliest land to be settled in Baulkham Hills. Interpretive signs tell the stories of the early settlers (the track is marked with the Heritage Trail Logo).  This circuit walk starts and finishes at Astrid Ave, Baulkham Hills.  Your own transport will be required for this activity.  When registering please provide your mobile number and membership number.
