There are many different walking tracks that lead to Glenrock Lagoon. It is a great place to take the family on a walking adventure, spotting local wildlife on the way - e.g. small lizards and echnidas.

Would do it again! Its a great little hike to do amongst the eucalyptus trees that end up on the beach and at the Lagoon. A lot of birds and wildlife to be seen and amazing landscapes to be photographied.

I was at Glenrock Lagoon recently with friends, the beach is so tranquil and the sand is lovely, with the surroundings to shade you.
