This was called the “Brick Pit”. Basically it consisted of a huge circular walkway around and above a body of water. It served as a conservation center for the local frogs which lived in the area. As you can see, it is very tall and very large.
Another site we walked to, was the bird wetlands. It was amazing to see hundreds of bird in some places, and water only a foot or so deep, strechting out hundreds of yards.
A little family of ducks right here… :)
A cool surprise and little side path led us to Shipwreck cove. At first I was like “Woah! Real shipwrecks!”
But then I read the sign.
It seems, people used to just wreck ships they no longer needed in this bay. So, there were a few ships remaining from where they wrecked and left them.
I almost fell into the bay getting this pic… not even joking. 0_0 The rocks were covered in some rather slippery brown silt. So glad I didn’t fall in!
The last thing we saw before going back to the stadium… Was the Saltmarshes. I think they put it at the end of the trail because everyone wanted to see it… We walked over 6 miles to get here, yeah, the park was that big. ;)
This place was one of the coolest places we have visited in my opinion. It was for one, dead quiet, except for the distant sound of cars on the highway.
The trees were not tall, but the walk was made so you walked under them. You can see from the shadows there were not many gaps in the trees at all. 99% of the walk was in the shade
And that was our trip to Sydney olympic park. It was a long day, (we walked over 10 miles) but very cool to see all kinds of olympic history here. Will definitely be remembering this trip for a long time.
