Starting from the car park off Beach Road, Carine, this walk takes you on a circuit around Carine Open Space, passing Little Carine Swamp and Big Carine Swamp. Carine Open Space is a great place to enjoy a bit of nature, get some off-leash activity with your dog, or meet with friends and family. There are plenty of wide-open spaces ringed by a network of walking and cycling paths. Some paths are paved while others are more natural, but they are all flat. This loop walk initially takes you alongside Beach Road towards Little Carine Swamp, winding around the wetland area. The path is closer to the road, but you can walk off-path on the grass. After passing the wetlands, the path leads through the middle of the park, passing a riding school where you can see the resident horses. From the riding school, a dirt pathway takes you through a woodland area with signage describing the different types of trees. When you emerge from the trees, the main path takes you around Big Carine Swamp, offering glimpses of the swamp through the dense vegetation. The path continues around the edge of the wetland area before emerging into more open grassland, leading to a picnic area with toilets, BBQ's and a large shaded playground. You can follow the path towards the skate park, or alternatively, continue around the perimeter to complete your loop walk. There's plenty of grassy open space to enjoy some exercise, even if you don't fancy a walk around the swamps. You can bring your dog to this park, provided they're on a leash and not let into the wetlands. Carine Open Space is always busy with people exercising, walking their dogs or enjoying the outdoor spaces. On weekends, it's the venue for the Carine Parkrun and the nearby playing fields can also make it very busy during sports seasons. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
