The Hawks Nest Nature Walk
Myall Koala Environment Group October 2021
Distance: 6.5kms (map below)
Time: 90 minutes at a steady pace
Two intersecting loops take you through Hawks Nest bush and streets to enjoy the wildflowers and habitat trees for which the area is renowned, earning it the name The Wildside.
The trees in the guards are a favourite koala species, the dwarf Parramatta red gum, Eucalyptus parramattensis, which are suitable for suburban gardens, being a relatively small variety growing between four to six meters high. Many of the other trees will eventually be labelled so residents will be able to choose the most suitable species to plant for their property.
September is our best month for wildflowers, although any time of the year something will be in flower.
Each tree guard has a plaque with brief information of a local animal or bird.
