A short walk through the wetlands and native plantings of the Halswell Quarry Conservation Area.
The Government is asking for everyone to stay at home. Their advice is that you can go for a walk or exercise outdoors for a short time, and to stick to simple walks or exercise spots close to home.
When you are out, you must stay two metres away from anyone who is not in your household.
Parks and cemeteries are open for pedestrian access only, and where possible we have closed off park car parks. Please do not use any play equipment or exercise equipment.
The following are closed:
Start: Halswell Quarry Visitor Centre.
Finish: Same as the starting point.
Distance: 400 metres
Time: 15 minute circuit.
Toilets: Located in the main car park area.
Dogs: No dogs allowed.
Start from the Visitor Centre, cross the road and take the path over the wooden bridge. From here you can enjoy walking the various paths that meander through the plantings and around the wetland.
The Halswell Quarry Conservation Area was established in 1999 creating wetland areas and extensive native planting that is now home to a variety of birdlife.
