Visiting Sydney Olympic Park to enjoy a few of the walks, this was the highlight. The viewing platform commands excellent views of the old quarry. There's lots of information on the history of the site, and parking nearby.

At 18.5 meters high, a 550 meter walkway ring above the Brickpit pond is a platform used to view the endangered Green and Golden Bell frog. But don't expect to see any frogs from there unless you have telephoto eyesight. Still a great place to visit if you want a bit of excercise, learn about the Bell Frog and history of the Brickpit. The platrorm does give a birds eye view of the lake and surrounding areas. The walls are lined full with information and pre-recorded talks from old brickies and sounds of frog and creek life come from loud speakers along the platform. The lake seem to have a green Algae problem at the moment, turning the whole lake green. We did see some wetlands birdlife and wild rabbits roaming the fields. No bikes are permitted on the platform so if your planning to come by bike don't forget to bring a bike chain and lock it on the bike racks provided. There is a bubbler if you need a drink. The best place to park is along Marjorie Jackson Parkway, there are 3 off street parking areas there , M-F 2Hours free, weekends 4 Hours Free, the Wentworth Common section of the carpark is where the closest toilets are located. You'll probably only need 15-30min to walk the ring and read about the history of where Sydney's brick supply came from as early as 1911 and the endangered Bell frog, less time needed if you have kids. Guided night time tours are available if you want to get up close to the frogs at ground level. Wouldn't it be nice if they could regenerate it as a wetlands area, but that would upset the eco system and bring in predatory wildlife so reduce or kill off the endangered Bell Frog community.

Had planned to walk around the park areas and do the brickpit ring walk. When I got there both entrances were shut, so not sure for how long this has been the case. I walked back around a gravel track that goes back to Australia Boulevard, and you can look back onto the area from the carparks.

Brickpit Ring Walk is more a curiosity than anything else. We visited hoping to see and hear the noises of things like frogs, insects, and other little beings that supposedly live in the area. We walked around the enclosure but all we saw was the walking ring, the dirty water and other related views. No frogs, no sounds, "no nothing", so to speak! A bit disappointing, as we had our little grandkid with us who was looking forward to the visit. Perhaps we did not look hard enough, but I doubt it. It's worth a visit, if only to just get it out of your system, if you are itching to go, otherwise you can easily give it a miss, unfortunately. When we visited it was very quiet and parking nearby cost us nothing!

This is a nice ring for people working nearby when they need short breaks and walk away from the desks...otherwise, there is nothing exciting which needs you to plan, come and waste time...This place is full of lizards, insects, and frog n their noises.. if you like them...
