Yellow Boot Walk

The Yellow Boot Walk was installed by the Castle Forbes Bay Landcare Group.

Initially, it follows the waters edge from the parking area and past some saltmarsh (look out for herons and fish). The saltmarsh area – once full of crack willows and blackberries – is now being regenerated with native species.

The path then follows ‘old jetty road’ through coastal woodland with spectacular scenic vistas along the river, and wildflowers in spring and summer. Return on the same path back to the car or follow Meredith Road back out towards the highway via Castle Forbes Bay cemetery.

The Castle Forbes Bay Landcare Group gathers to work on activities such as the removal of weeds and the regeneration of native species, building and maintenance of the Yellow Boot Walk, maintenance of Castle Forbes Bay cemetery, annual Clean Up Australia Day and provides advice and help to new residents and other landcare groups. Join them at their working bees on the first Saturday of the month – 9am til 10:30am followed by a barbeque. For more information visit the website.
