Muru and Yena Tracks

1 hr 30 mins

2.8 km Circuit

51 m

Moderate track
Following the service trails, this track covers many of the major walking tracks on Botany Bay’s south side. Thick eucalypts and ferns surround the trail and there are great views from the Yena Picnic Area – a good place to break, (although it lacks shade). This walk is a nice way to explore a fair bit of the park.
