Description

The route of the Brickfields Track takes you through the historic remains of the brick-making area, part of the nearby and short lived 1840’s convict probation station. The track is a mix of narrow bush track and timber boardwalk with some steps along the route and winds its way from the intersection of Taronga Rd and the Channel Highway to link with the Alum Cliffs track.

This track can be combined with the Alum Cliffs Track and the Metro bus to provide a great loop out of Kingston Beach. Access to toilets, parking and cafes is available at Kingston Beach and limited parking is available at Taronga Rd. There is a lookout on the Alum Cliffs Track which can be reached from the Brickfields Track in less than 10 minutes
