Starting from the car park near Kambah Pool Southern Beach, Kambah, this route takes you to Pine Island Reserve via the Murrumbidgee Discovery Track. With a beach on both ends, this riverside walk can make for a great weekend trip with the family. There are various canoe entry points and cute little swimming spots along with a variety of viewpoints, providing you gorgeous views over the river. Birdwatching can be quite fruitful as you have a chance to see a Peregrine Falcon around Red Rocks Gorge, the fastest bird in the world with a mind-blowing maximum speed of 390km/h. Yellow-faced Honeyeaters are also known to migrate through the area in autumn. Additionally, the reserve is home to some fluffy wombats which can induce a desire to pick them up and rock them like a baby. Please refrain yourself from doing so. Keep in mind that this walk can be done in reverse and is a part of the 28 km Murrumbidgee Discovery Track. There are no trash bins present, so prepare accordingly. 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.
