Yuelarbah and Burwood Track Loop
4.6 km

1 h to 2 h

30 min to 45 min

Starting from the Yuelarbah car park on Burwood Road, Whitebridge, this walk takes you on a circuit around Glenrock Lagoon via the Yuelarbah and Burwood tracks. This moderately challenging loop winds its way around Glenrock Lagoon, a picturesque freshwater lagoon located within the Glenrock State Conservation Area, which contains many historic sites. The lagoon is a popular swimming spot, fed by two creeks before flowing into the ocean at the opposite end, and is also an important site for the Awabakal people. The walk initially heads along a wheelchair-accessible elevated boardwalk and follows the Yuelarbah Track, crossing a suspension bridge over Flaggy Creek, then continues alongside the creek, passing a picnic area and a small waterfall. After crossing a timber footbridge over Little Flaggy Creek, just above another waterfall, the walk reaches Leichhardt's Lookout, which offers excellent views over Glenrock Lagoon and beyond towards the ocean. From there, the walk descends a series of steps through dense rainforest and meanders alongside the lagoon, crossing several footbridges before emerging at Glenrock Beach, a popular surfing spot. Continuing along the beach, the walk crosses the lagoon outlet and heads inland through the coastal eucalypt forest, passing the Glenrock Scout Camp and offering views of the historic Burwood Colliery. The walk continues along the Burwood Track, which begins on Scout Camp Road opposite the water tank, then follows the Yuelarbah Management Trail back to the car park. This loop consists of wide and narrow walking trails and fire tracks, with uneven natural surfaces, compacted natural surfaces, compacted gravel surfaces, boardwalk sections and steps. Suitable for average fitness levels. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
