Sphinx, War­ri­moo and Bob­bin Head tracks A 4 hrs 9.6 km cir­cuit, harder track

Monthly Chronicle - - Outdoor Lifestyle -

This great walk starts at the Sphinx Memo­rial and loops around via Cowan Creek, ex­plor­ing di­verse en­vi­ron­ments as it changes al­ti­tude. Whilst walk­ing along­side Cowan Creek you will dis­cover many shell mid­dens, piles of shell de­bris ac­cu­mu­lated over time from Abo­rig­i­nal peo­ple eat­ing shell­fish. Also about 7.7km into this walk is the Bob­bin Head Track Abo­rig­i­nal En­grav­ing Site, which although faded, is well worth vis­it­ing. There is an op­tional side trip to the Em­pire Ma­rina and cafe for a recharge be­fore the climb back up to the Sphinx. Full notes and maps http://wild.tl/swbh
