Pool of Siloam - Leura



This pleasant walk, which starts at Gordon Falls Reserve picnic area at Leura, kept us mostly out of the wind until we reached the top on our return. The track leads down steps into the gully to a rainforest pocket on the Gordon Creek.

The walk to the Pool of Siloam can be completed by returning the same way, however our leader took us on an alternative track, which ended at The Links Rd. The walk back to the station from there, took us past Everglades Gardens, which is well worth a visit in my opinion.                        Map link                       'Wildwalks'

Rozelle Bay to Pyrmont Bay

We started this walk at Rozelle light rail station, and mostly followed the Glebe foreshores around Rozelle and Blackwattle Bays to Wentworth Park.   Location map

Our group extended the walk, cutting through Pyrmont to Johnstons Bay, and ending at Pyrmont Bay light rail station.
