From the car park off Augustine Drive turn right and follow the path that leads into the small native forest.

There are several offshoots that take you closer to the creek that runs along side and a second entrance off Warren Crescent. You can use these offshoots to turn the track into a loop. 

The second half of the walk takes you through open fields and onto a shared cycle path along Curletts Road.
