Note: Lane Cove residents can now enjoy the upgraded walking track at Ventemans Reach following the recent completion of works jointly funded by Council and the NSW Government.
The upgrade involved the replacement of steps and boardwalks from the track entry towards the Saltmarsh Surprise Area which runs north along the Lane Cove River. This bushland is home to several endangered ecological vegetation communities and an improved track will provide greater access and safety for members of the local community looking to enjoy the area. New track signage will soon be placed in the area.
This project was jointly funded by Lane Cove Council and the NSW government under the Sharing Sydney Harbour Access Program.
