Guided Walk: National Reconciliation Week – Glades Bay Riverwalk - Session 1

Join us to celebrate National Reconciliation Week and Take a walk along the Wulaba track, enjoy the remnant of bushland in Glades Bay Reserve and be on the lookout for bush tucker plants as you are guided through the bush to the shores of the Parramatta River. Learn about the local Indigenous history of the Wallumedegal clan, understand their co-existence within the surrounding area of Glades Bay and visit Aboriginal rock carvings. The newly built Riverwalk track has been completed, so you can take in the new breath taking water views.
