Attractions


Ring Walk

The Ring Walk encircles the brick pit and is 18 meters high. There’s no real climbing involved as the two ingress points are higher than the pit. Apart from the visual experience there are also some soundscapes where you can learn about the history of the pit.

Bike Ride

Sydney Olympic Park has a number on pleasant cycleways that join Bicentennial Park and eventually the Cook’s River Cycleway. The Brickpit Ring Walk is just on of many sights and landmarks you can find along the bike path.

Green & Gold Bell Frogs

These iconic amphibians live in the pond beneath the ring walk. While it’s unlikely you’ll be able to spot them without some binoculars, you might be able to hear their distinctive croak.
