Brickpit Ring Walk at Bicentennial Park Sydney
The Brickpit Ring Walk is an urban park and elevated walkway over a frog habitat and water storage facility in Bicentennial Park, Sydney Olympic Park.
The Ring Walk is accessed by an elevated walkway in two spots – the easiest is at the Brickpit Ring Walk carpark.
A circular walkway 550m in circumference and raised 18.5 metres above the sandstone floor of the Brickpit, the Ring Walk allows visitors to experience what was once the State Brickworks and is now a habitat for the endangered Green and Golden Bell frog and other native Australian animals.
It’s only a short walk to complete the circuit, however it’s a fascinating one with information panels outlining the significance of the Brickpit’s heritage and environmental significance.
There are stunning views on the walk as well, to the chorus of frog and bird calls, and the recorded voices of the pit workers as they discuss their experience working to make the clay bricks in this spot that were sent all over Sydney to build our city.
Afterwards, check out nearby Wentworth Common. It has excellent picnic facilities and a large nature-based playground.
There is more of Bicentennial Park to explore as well, plus nearby Blaxland Riverside Playground and the Olympic Cauldron in Cathy Freeman Park. Or, take a dip in the Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre. Scoot or bike around the Newington Armory.
