Lake Parramatta | Dog Friendly Walk in North Parramatta

Home » Places » Australia » New south wales » North Parramatta » Lake Parramatta | Dog Friendly Walk in North Parramatta


Distance: 4.2km

Difficulty: Easy

Lake Circuit is the longest track at Lake Parramatta. Simply follow the track going around the lake. There are two shorter dog friendly hikes as well in the reserve, She-Oak-Track and Banksia Trail.

The great thing about Lake Parramatta Reserve is that it gives you the opportunity to experience bush walking with your dog whilst still being very close to Sydney.

The hike around the lake is not too hard but can be challenging at times due to uneven surfaces. The area is very family friendly, with lots of picnic and BBQ facilities, public toilets, and a small cafe to rest up and have a coffee. Dogs must be on lead due to plenty of wildlife in the reserve.

    An absolutely beautiful place that feels 1000 miles away. There’s different tracks depending on fitness, accessibility and time you want to spend walking. The lake circuit is beautiful and you’ll get to walk around the whole lake with lots of nature immersive photo opportunities. You will cross some creeks so prepare to get your feet wet if it has just rained, otherwise watch your step on the slippery rocks. There are also some points where there are stairs or logs you will need to climb over. There are side tracks leading out of the park back to different suburbs and residences so be prepared to do a bit of trial and error if you have a bad sense of direction. There is signage but not all the way around as there is generally a very distinct path for most of the track. Definitely bring water as there are no taps till you get back to the bbq area. You can drive into the park and this is where the bbq area is as well as bathrooms, parking, cafe and a paddle boat hire service. This is a great location for a family day out but be prepared as it does get busy on weekends and you may need to park outside and walk into the park which takes around 10-15 minutes.
