This track may be accessed from Buranby Drive (uphill) or Lawless Road (downhill). Follow the rivulet for a vigorous walk that meanders through green grassland, natural bushland and shady fern gullies. The Nierinna Creek area is frequented by white goshawks, black swans, swift parrots, ducks, and our beloved noisy native hens. Tramway Hill Landcare Group has worked hard to eradicate weeds and rehabilitate with local native species.

The entire track is now accessible for horses by using newly build fords next the top bridges. Can be combined with Margate Rivulet Track by walking up Buranby Drive, turning right into Nierinna Road, and then left into Rollins Road when walking downhill, and with Kaoota Tramway Track by walking up Lawless Road when walking uphill.

Note: Horses and bikes are now permitted on the entire track (see signs) but the top section is recommended for experienced bike and horse riders only.
