An old access point to a lovely part of the river. The Old River steps, also known as the 100 step walk, descend along the cliff line to an often completely deserted area of the Georges river perfect for swimming or just exploring along the river. Whilst in the area be sure to keep an eye out for the “Minto monster” A creature reported to be sighted many times between the years of 1932 and 1987. “A creature of pointed ears, rust coloured with three large brown stripes”
Distance: No set distance. Its a ten minute walk down some “Stairs” to access the river. Once there I genuinely believe you could follow the river as far as Kentlyn’s Basin or further, just not easily.
Address: Duncan Street Minto Heights. Follow the road till the end and park near the locked fire trail access gate without blocking it.
