Getting There

Nierinna Creek Track is best accessed from the end of Burnaby Drive in Margate. Parking is available at this point.

This track may be accessed from Burnaby 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. The Tramway Hill Landcare Group has worked hard to eradicate weeds and rehabilitate with local native species.

The entire track is accessible for horses by using fords next to the top bridges. Can be combined with Margate Rivulet Track by walking up Burnaby 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 permitted on the entire track (see signs) but the top section is recommended for experienced bike and horse riders only.
