Review:
Casuarina grove circuit—2.7 km circuit, plus optional 800 m loop (allow 30–40 mins riding time).
 
As the name suggests, this circuit leads you through a grove of casuarina trees—the favoured food tree of the vulnerable glossy black-cockatoo. To extend your ride there is the option of diverging to an additional loop which adds another 800 m (8 mins riding time) to your trip.
 
Three hills track—2 km one way (allow 20–30 mins riding time)
 
Starting from the track entrance on Centre Road, the Three hills track winds through open forest of grey gum and tallowwood, habitat for the regionally-vulnerable koala, before joining the Casuarina grove circuit. This track includes steep hilly sections; a moderate level of fitness is recommended.
