Turkeys Nest picnic area and lookout

Just a short walk down the hill you’ll find the picnic area, which also provides extensive views as a delightful backdrop to your meal. Turkeys Nest is dog-friendly so bring your four-legged friends along for a picnic too.

The Loop trail takes you on a varied and pretty stroll on a loop walk around William Howe Regional Park. You’ll see farmlands spreading across the Razorback Mountains and to the Blue Mountains escarpment in the distance and up on the hill you’ll pass Turkeys Nest lookout and picnic area, the highest point on the track and a great place to stop for a break or a picnic lunch.
From here, the walk heads into the trees, where you’ll forget how close you are to the suburbs as you lose yourself for a little while in nature. The Loop trail is a great walk for children, plus the park is dog-friendly, so you’re welcome to bring your dogs along, provided they’re on a leash.
