Glades Bay Park and Wulaba Track
The Wulaba Track is a boardwalk that runs along along the Parramatta River, through a quiet mangrove, rich in history of the Wallumedegal people.
Access the Wulaba Track from Bill Mitchell Park, where there is a car park. Bill Mitchell Park itself is a lovely large green space and sports field to run around and is on-leash dog-friendly. There are public bathrooms available here.
At the end of Bill Mitchell Park is Glades Bay and the start of the Wulaba Track, at the left corner.
Follow the path to the new boardwalk, which winds through the mangroves.
Along the way you’ll find a boat ramp, benches to sit on, a street library and a brick maze.
There are also interpretative signs along the way to learn about the Wallumedegal people, the Aboriginal tribe who occupied the area prior to European settlers.
The boardwalk is around 200m long, and ends in Glades Bay Park. You can walk back the same way you came to the car park.
