NOTE: the route is updated to avoid the Rifle Range which is now Private Property. The Great North Walk connects New South Wales' two largest cities from the obelisk in Australia's first planned town square to the wharf from which its oldest home-built steamship still sails in over 250 kilometres of history, mystery and fascination.

This trail is easy to get to by public transport from Sydney as you start at Cowan Train Station and finish at Berowra Train Station. It's a five-minute train ride between stations and car parking is available at both Cowan and Berowra train stations. The trail explores the ridges, valleys and creeks around the Berowra Waters section of the Great North Walk and features excellent views of the valley from Naa Badu Lookout. This is a moderately challenging walk with some decent climbs. Toilets and water are available near the Berowra Waters ferry wharf which is near the half-way point of the walk.Show more
