Easy track
Starting from the Nurragingy Reserve car park, Doonside, this walk takes you on a circuit in Nurragingy Reserve, visiting a number of botanical gardens along the way. This walk is a little gem as it is situated close to the urban setting and offers different types of plants and trees for observation. The main attractions are Chang Lai Yuan Chinese Gardens and the Aboriginal Heritage Garden. The reserve is open for pets, cycling and running, along with useful amenities such as restrooms and picnic areas. The texture of the walk varies between a paved and dirt track. 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.
