Ready to Join?

This walk is another great escape from the city, but still very close to the city and accessible by public transport.

This walk is grade 5. Required level of fitness is the average one. However, the walk is not marked up properly and sometimes it takes few minutes to find your way through the bush. If in shorts, you might end up with scratched legs. Depending of tide level, we might end up crossing water, trough the water, up to your knees.
So if you are not ready for that kind of adventure, please do not sign for this event.
I did this walk 3 times and I really enjoyed it each time. But I would say it is for committed and adventurous bushwalkers.

The walk is in Davidson Park wich is part of the Garigal NP. It starts Protected content . When we reach the end of the harbour, we will cross the water and come back the other side of the harbour.

The walk is approximately 18km long. It can be done in Protected content . However, I allowed 8.5h for this event.

There are several buses from different directions. From Wynyard there are buses Protected content 271. You need to take first stop after the bridge (north from the bridge) and then come back towards the bridge and under the bridge to NP parking and picnic sports. Photo where is the bus stop is attached. If you are coming by bus from the city and leaving bus at the west/left side of the road, stay at that side of the road all the way back to the picnic ground under the bridge.
If you are coming by car, from the city, note that carriageway is separated, so you cannot turn right after the bridge and there is no exist to the NP from the left lane. You have to continue straight after the bridge to get to some point where you can make U-turn and come back towards the bridge from the north side and take exit to NP from north side to the east. You will get under the bridge. There are several parking areas. 5min walking distance one from another. You can park wherever you want. Note that our meeting point is as atProtected content
