I have been walking thru this area on and off for a number of years. I recently returned after a long time away. It has now got bituminised tracks which makes for safer walking and parts of the bush have been cordoned off which protects these areas. I think it is a lovely walk and well done to those that...

Can recommend Star Swamp as a perfect place to unwind. You'll walk, you'll breathe, and you'll feel so much better for an hour or two in old fashioned bush-land.

I walk regularly through Star Swamp. It's a lovely park with natural Australian bush and plenty of bird life.

Either a great dog walk or a walk for yourself. The paths are easy, the bush is so quiet, yet so close to suburbia. Very interesting things to look at. Watch out for snakes when the weather is warmer. Feels safe as always someone around.

The Star Swamp Bush reserve is a great 2 or 3 hour hike through the surviving bushland. Don a hat and walking gear and head out for a stroll. Keep an eye out for the woild life and plants. While some rabbits have made their way into the reserve with some obvios damage it is still a very good untouched... More

Walk your dog or yourself. This little bit of nature within suburbia is a great way to spend a couple of hours. Get your ealking shoes on and see some nature.

Star swamp is a patch of remnant bushland with a swamp nestled in the suburbia that has grown up around it. There a range of different limestone base tracks and a few sand tracks crisscrossing through the scrub. It makes for a range of nice easy walks that do not go too far. Tracks are suitable for prams and most... More

This is a lovely dog walk! They say dogs on leads but I see most dogs off the lead! Very pram friendly! It's like your walking in the bush but your in the middle of the houses!!!!!

Nice area just for a walk in bushland. Only minutes from the ocean too. The walking is easy and flat. Nice in all weathers but especially in spring.

This area of bushland has been preserved with some cleared paths that meander through banksia and tuarts. There are plaques to explain historical features. The swamp has grassed areas that provide access to view water birds. Take some time to stroll through the quieter stretches away from the road and try to spot native orchids. The locals do a great...
