Bicentennial Park

We stated our walk to the Homebush Bay - Badu Mangrove section of Bicentennial Park, at Rhodes Station. We followed the track alongside Homebush Bay Drive, before exploring the section of track between Powells Creek and the Billabong.  See map link

We shouldn't have been surprised when we encountered mosquitoes in the area between the creek and the billabong (photos left & below).

The wreak of  various ships can be seen from the 'Shipwreck Lookout', which juts out into Homebush Bay. The reason for this, is that part of the bay was once used as a ship-breaking yard.

Rhodes is about 17kms from Central Sydney. You could also start or finish from Concord West. This was a return visit for me -
