The Randwick Environment Park, an area of the former Randwick Army Barracks restored as a park, is a tranquil spot to experience the wetlands and native wildlife. The beauty of this environment park is that it is not far from the city - a neighbourhood park located at the corner of Dooligah Avenue and Burragulung Street, Randwick. This was my first visit to this environment park, and I was so surprised to find this park in the middle of residential precinct.
Surrounded by the grassed area with defined footpaths, walking trails, and bike tracks, there is something for everyone. Adding to this, there are also picnic shelters. Following the well-made footpath to the right, there is an entrance leading you to the wetlands.
Stepping into the park, there is a large grassy area.
On the way to the wetlands, you can enjoy the nature - a wide array of flora and fauna are in the surrounds. The walk is generally level and it may only take 45 minutes or so to complete the walk from the park to the wetland area. It's a pleasant walk, enabling you to enjoy the tranquility and peaceful escape.
You can start your journey to the Wetland area by following the footpath.
Continuing your walk you can find the viewing platform for you to watch the birds. Since I visited the park recently and the weather was a bit hot, it left the wetlands fairly dry. Luckily, I could still see different species of birds resting on the wetlands - an inland lake in the centre. To enhance your pleasure of bird watching, it's definitely handy if you can bring along your binoculars.
The viewing platform is great to view the birds resting on the wetland
