JURORS will today visit the site where Allison Baden-Clay's body was found along Kholo Creek and the Brookfield home she had lived in before she died.

Justice John Byrne told jurors they would first visit the bridge site, where her body was found 14m below on a muddy creek bed at the base of steep banks in 2012.

He told them they should wear sensible walking shoes, wear head gear and put on sunscreen for being outdoors.

Justice Byrne warned them it was unnecessary to approach or consider a memorial constructed for Allison Baden-Clay at the bridge.

"The purpose of the view is to enable you to understand evidence that has been given," he told them.

"What you see on the view is not itself evidence."

Justice Byrne told them media had been asked not to identify them on the view.

He said there would be a recorder there in case there were any questions that must be answered.

The bridge is about 14km - a 15min drive - from the house the Baden-Clays were renting at 593 Brookfield Road at Brookfield.
