Looking for somewhere to go for a walk in the area while on holidays and saw the good reviews for the common so decided to visit. Not sure why it got such good reviews- it is a flat track through farm/scrub. Nothing special. The river...More

Oxley Creek Common entails an environment centre, some historical structures and a 5km round trip walk along a path alongside Oxley Creek. The walk is flat on a wide formed gravel path, suitable for bikes, young children, and "off-road" prams. It ends at the hoop...More

It's an easy long walk, children can take their bicycles as it's all flat and it might take a bit of encouragement to get them to the Secret Forest. Being surrounded by scrub and mangroves gives it a feeling of being out in the country.
