Western Sydney Parklands Family Walks: Nine Ideas For You


Did you know that Western Sydney Parklands has over 60km of tracks and trails, terrific for family walks, cycling and running?   

If you have a baby in a stroller, junior walkers with little legs or school-aged children who love to run around at top speed, there’s a trail to suit every family at the park known as Sydney’s Biggest Backyard

(There are also the excellent playgrounds at Plough and Harrow Park and at Lizard Log, of course, click the names for all the info you need to plan a visit.)


Nine new trails have been launched, in three areas of the park.

Blacktown Area in the northern part of the Parklands: all four walks are graded easy and are in close proximity to the new Sydney Zoo.

  • Bungarribee Trail 4.6km
  • Heart Crossing Loop 2.3km
  • Binyang Matta Trail 6.7km
  • Binyang Matta Short Loop 1.9km




Fairfield Area in the central part: three longer and more challenging walks.

  • Moonrise Loop 6.2km (the Moonrise Lookout offers one of the most spectacular views of the Sydney City skyline.)
  • Sugarloaf Loop 2km
  • Pimelea Loop  1.6km

Liverpool area in the south: two shorter trails

  • Plough and Harrow Loop 1.6km
  • Spotted Gums Trail 3km



You can download information and digital maps for each walk on the Western Sydney Parklands website here.

Here’s one example for you to have a look at:



Western Sydney Parklands is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. When you need a dose of nature, somewhere to exercise and a place where you can see for miles, pop over there.



I do love to print out a map to have in my actual hand. What about you?


Here’s to getting outside with the kids, to breathing in loads of fresh air and to enjoying exercise: for our minds and bodies too.
