Piccaninnie Ponds Outlet Walk
1.5 km

45 min to 1 h

Starting from the car park at the end of Piccaninnie Ponds Road, Wye, this walk takes you past the Piccaninnie Ponds Outlet and back via the Piccaninnie Ponds Outlet Walk. This relatively short and effortless journey takes you to the amazing Pic­canin­nie Ponds, which are internationally significant. The site is an outstanding example of karst and coastal fen wetlands, renowned for its deep, crystal-clear waters and underwater limestone caverns that attract many scuba divers. The walk initially follows a walk­ing trail through coastal wat­tle and beard heath, offering views of the South­ern Ocean and the Lower South East Marine Park along the way. After passing the pond out­let, the walk heads inland through silky tea trees and cut­ting grass, then follows a boardwalk to a viewing platform that offers excellent views of the main ponds wetland. The ponds have a rich biodiversity and are home to various species of native plants, such as bam­boo reed and bul­rush, as well as freshwater fish, eels and shrimp. This walk consists of wide, mostly flat walking trails with compacted natural surfaces and boardwalk sections. It is suitable for all ages and 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.
