Love MacRitchie
Nature Culture Guided Walks by Cicada Tree Eco-Place

FREE public guided nature walks to the Central Catchment Nature Reserve at Venus Drive (MacRitchie).

The MacRitchie Forest Trail at Venus Drive meanders along the banks of a crystal-clear forest stream that is full of freshwater life. Here live dragons and damsels, freshwater crabs and prawns, the Puff-faced Watersnake, Pygmy Halfbeak and Saddle Barb. Look out, too, for the Green Crested Lizard, Red-bellied Squirrel, Long-tailed Macaque, Blue-rumped Parrot and Colugo. Walk in the cool shade of old trees. Feel the peace that only a rainforest can give. Come with us, and learn more about this rainforest. Feel our natural heritage at risk. The trail here is a dirt path which is relatively level and suitable for children, the elderly and the physically-challenged. Be prepared for some mud.
