Gadyan Track - Walks

Gadyan Track

The Gadyan Track is a 750-metre, easy-grade, signposted bushland walking track that loops around Berry Island. The walk places Aboriginal cultural heritage in both a traditional and contemporary context.

The Gadyan Track on Berry Island tells part of the stories and legends of the Cammeraygal. Gadyan is the Aboriginal name for the Sydney cockle, a shellfish common in middens on the island.


Berry Island is located at the southern end of Shirley Road, Wollstonecraft. Limited on-street parking is available on Shirley Road.

Berry Island Reserve is a 10 minute walk from Wollstonecraft railway station.


§ The landscapes of foreshore areas, such as Balls Head, Berry Island, Kirribilli, Cammeray and Cremorne, are dotted with cultural relics from the Cammeraygal. The Gadyan track contains evidence of thousands of years of Aboriginal occupation in the North Sydney area. It leaves visitors with a strong impression of the traditional life of the Cammeraygals. We hope the track will encourage awareness of Aboriginal heritage and culture.
