Description

Find out more

Designed for people with limited mobility, the Loo-Errn track follows the south bank of Tidal River and provides access to the Tidal River footbridge. A short boardwalk (with platforms allowing access for fishing) protects the fragile wetlands. Start at the picnic area in the carpark opposite the Visitor Centre or at First Ramp on the west end of 6th Avenue.

It is great to walk anytime, but dawn and sunset is particularly good as you are more likely to see more animals such as wombats and, unfortunately, pests like deer.

Points of Interest

1. Tea Tree tunnel

A little after the start of the track is some beautifully gnarled Tea Trees that make the path look like a bit like a tunnel.

From the path you can see the Tidal River footbridge. Cross the bridge to go to the tracks to Squeaky, Mt Bishop or other great walks.

3. First seat

The is the first of a few seats that have been installed long the track. wonderful to sit and watch for a while.

4. Hello wombat

If you take the walk at dusk you have a reasonable chance of coming across a wombat. Please don't feed the animals!

From here on the track is a Boardwalk until the last little bit.

There are three viewing platforms along the track that often used by people fishing.

The boardwalk gets very close to the river at the first bend.

8. To Mt Obernon

Fantastic view to Mt Oberon and the third viewing platform along the river.

Great view up the river from the final viewing platform.

10. Away from the river

The quietest spot of the walk as you head away from the river.

Love this gnarly old stump, wonder what animals live inside?

12. Picnic tables

Two picnic tables can be found next the boardwalk.

13. Oh dear!

Unfortunately the Prom is being invaded by some pests, including feral deer that come to the river to drink.
