The Nierinna Creek Track is a lovely track on the outskirts of Margate starting from Burnaby Drive. Immersed in beautiful bushland the track follows Nierinna Creek for 6km, occasionally scrambling to the upper sections of the gully. Both dogs and horses are welcomed on this trail.
Skirting properties initially, the track crosses an open meadow before climbing into bushland. From here the track steadily climbs, crossing Perrins Road after 30 minutes. Following the creek further the track steeply climbs before descending into lush wet sclerophyll forest; the highlight of the walk. A short distance further the end of the track at lawless Road is reached. Return via the same route or along the road.
