This is my first time to Star Swamp and it is a wonderful place for a gentle bush walk in the centre of a suburb. You can't get lost as houses and roads border all four sides but you can wander at your own pace...More

Star Swamp Bushland Reserve is not what I expected. It’s not a swamp for a start. It’s a lovely peaceful area of Bushland in the middle of suburbia, that is a delightful find. There’s a few free parking spots at the southern end of the...More

More than just "bush" this bushland includes signage about early explorers and pioneers, camel trains and market gardens. Well worth a walk through the bushland

When walking around the dense bush land you can forget that civilisation is but a few 100 meters away. Even the busy Marmion Avenue doesn’t distract from the native wildlife whilst in the reserve. Great for dog walkers, cyclists and ramblers. Be warned it can...More

Can recommend Star Swamp as a perfect place to unwind. You'll walk, you'll breathe, and you'll feel so much better for an hour or two in old fashioned bush-land.

I walk regularly through Star Swamp. It's a lovely park with natural Australian bush and plenty of bird life.

Either a great dog walk or a walk for yourself. The paths are easy, the bush is so quiet, yet so close to suburbia. Very interesting things to look at. Watch out for snakes when the weather is warmer. Feels safe as always someone around.
