I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.

An urban bushwalk awaits your discovery at Bidjigal Reserve, a bushland Crown Reserve in The Hills Shire NSW. Park the car at Ted Horwood Reserve where there are toilets, a children's playground and water. Walk North alongside the Darling Mills Creek to Eric Mobbs Reserve and return.

The track begins on the south side of the tennis courts but keep your eyes peeled for the directional signs. This walk is suitable in all seasons but could be a bit slippery after heavy rains. It is nicely shaded for Summer and there is drinking water at each end.

Although never far from civilization as you walk through the reserve, you will pass by areas of Aboriginal and European cultural heritage. This includes rock shelters with archaeological deposits and a gorge where a local bushranger had a hideout.

Bidjigal Reserve is a natural habitat in the heart of the Hills area with many native plant species, native animals and walking through it is an interesting, relaxing and educational experience. Flying foxes, owls, microbats and eastern water dragons can be seen here as well as spring flowers and native orchids as wells as tabbies, eels and turtles in the waterways.
