Get up with the birds and start walking
Just minutes from Modbury is the most beautiful walk in the shade under the tree lined path. I start at the duck pond. To get there, turn right onto Jubilee Way off Grenfell Road if you are going up Grenfell and of course, turn left off Grenfell if you are coming down.

Park and gardens
Jubilee Duck Pond

You can't miss the duck pond on your right and the Community Centre building is right there. There is plenty of car parks there.
There is a water fountain in the pond which can create wonderful rainbows.

Beautiful Pond

They have the Pacific Black Ducks visiting and laying eggs there. Pelicans fly in on occasions and there are Ibis and many other sorts of birdlife.

Also during the warmer months. it is a very good place to try and get those elusive dragonfly shots. And they are fast. Stay near the rocks and you will see the pattern they have and you should be able to run off a few dozen shots.

Insects shots

They have a park bench where you can put all your gear and you will probably change lens a few times. Next time I will be trying my new ND filter on the water fountain. You can feed the ducks but don't feed them bread - it is not good for them. They have turtles in the pond if you are quick.

All kinds of ducks visit there.

When you have finished there you can walk along the path and spot the birdlife in the trees.

Birds in the trees along the walk

It is a beautiful walk. Don't forget to look down as you are walking. You never know what you will find. In winter hopefully lots of water will be flowing in the little creek along there.

They have a playground, tennis court and dogs are allowed on lead. It is part of the Tea Tree Gully Council area.

You can walk along the track all the way to Wynn Vale Dam.
