The Great River Walk: Stage 1

Today, I took Jack for a long walk along the Nepean River, on what is being called The Great River Walk, a combined walking and cycling track, that is being prepared in sections to provide a green zone for the people of Penrith and Emu Plains.

I understand that the ultimate aim is for this Walk to follow the Hawkesbury-Nepean River system - from the south of Goulburn to its mouth at Broken Bay, just north of Sydney! Stage 1, the Penrith to Windsor section, is the first constructed section.

Despite the super scary anti-Jack Russell-type metal grill boardwalk and bridge, the Walk is very scenic and easy to traverse. I'm sure Jack will develop his bravery and bridge skills to tackle the metal grills again next time.
