Exit Gannon&#039;s Park to Forest Road via Boatwright Avenue. Turn left into Forest Road and then right into Cypress Drive. Go down the steps at the bottom of Cypress Drive and follow the riverside track along Salt Pan Creek to the South West. In the distance you will soon see Alfords Point Bridge. <br> <br> Further a long the track is an oyster shell beach and other evidence of past oyster farming. Across the river is Padstow Heights near the entrance to Salt Pan Creek. Also keep your eye out for river birdlife. <br> <br> Soon after you pass transmission lines crossing the river turn left through the rain forest track into H. V. Evatt Park. Leave the Park into Allwood Crescent and take the steps on the right to Banksia Place. Turn right into Moon&#039;s Avenue and walk to the end for more river views. Stick to the high ground if you don&#039;t want to walk back up the steep climb from Soily Bottom Point. <br> <br> Double back along Moon&#039;s Avenue until you reach the park on the corner of Cedar Street. At the back of the Park is a track heading SSW. There are more beautiful river views along this track. On the other side of the river is Moon Point. You will come across some ruins of oyster farmer cottages with quite substantial stonework. <br> <br> Keep following the track until you are in sight of the Lugarno jetty. Unfortunately, the riverfront land here is fenced off and you will have to climb up to Lugarno Parade. It may be better to go back when the going gets hard and return to Cedar street. Head East to the end of Lugarno Parade to Lugarno Reserve with views of Lugarno jetty and across the River to Illawong, the sight of the old punt. <br> <br> Double back along Lugarno Parade and turn right at Oak Street. Follow Oak Street around until you reach Forest Parade. If you have the energy you may turn right and follow Forest Road down to its end at the Lugarno Marina and back. Otherwise turn left into Forest Road and continue up the hill until turning right at Boronia Parade and into Woodcliff Parade. Turn right into Jacaranda Avenue and cross Bayside Place into the Park. There you will find some steps going down to the river bank opposite Lime Kiln Bay. <br> <br> From here it is a pleasant 1.5 kilometre walk North along the track following Boggywell Creek back to Gannon&#039;s Park. Go to: <br> <br>
