Burwood Trail

Natural Attractions

From high on the escarpment, you can look down at historic Burwood Colliery. It was first excavated in the 19th century, around 1861. It’s now well-preserved and part of the State Heritage register. Listen for the call of bellbirds. Look for the male regent bowerbird, with its glossy black and bright yellow plumage. Echidnas can also been seen out foraging at dawn or dusk.

The trail begins on Scout Camp Road above the scout camp. You’ll see the track entry opposite the water tank. Walkers can join Yuelarbah walking track at the western end of the track or the Leggy Point loop walking track at the eastern end, which also links to Glenrock Beach. Horse riders can also use this trail, which joins into a network of others in the park.
