The Davistown to Kincumber shared cycle/walking track is a level and pleasant 2.75km walk along the foreshore of the Kincumber Broadwater.
Beginning at Davistown, near the reserve, we headed north along a raised boardwalk which winds through wetland and mangrove trees. The boardwalk eventually opens onto a wide concrete footpath along the broadwater and passes a children’s playground. After a short forested section, the pathway ends at Carrak Road, Kincumber, near a wharf and some memorials to the past ship building heritage of the Kincumber area.
Completing this walk on a wintry morning, we spotted about 10 different species of birdlife. Among the wetlands we saw fairy-wrens and even a quail darting around in the undergrowth. As we came along the pathway we saw kookaburras, magpie-larks (also known as peewees), and willie wagtails; then ducks, white-faced heron, cormorants, pelicans and ibis as we walked near the broadwater.
