Little Digger Track


1 Hr

2.2 km One way

93 m

Moderate track
This walk follows Moores Creek through several reserves in east Roseville and East Lindfield. The track is named after Australia’s 7th Prime Minster, who once lived in the area. The walk explores the ferns and sandstone overhangs of the area, and there are several small waterfalls on Moore creek, which are worth the very short detour to visit. Officially, the Little Digger track finishes near the bottom of the Carlyle road service trail, but we included this section to get back to the road.
