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 is the 4th part of the Great North Walk, to see the list of sections or the full trail go here: https://www.alltrails.com/lists/great-north-walk--70 This section continues up through Brisbane Water National Park then following Mooney Mooney Creek before a section along dirt roads in Somersby farmland. Along the way it paces several iconic bridges plus there are a few side trips off the main trail including Somersby Falls, the Girrakool Aboriginal Rock Engraving and Site Calga Rock engravings. It is normally a two-day walk staying at one of the designated campsites(booking is generally required). But can also be done as a long day walk or split up into several day-walks. Booking is required for most sites and you plan to stay at a Crown Land campground you need to fill out the reservation form https://app.smartsheet.com/b/form/acba2b1cd658485485275b8e8e45c150. It can be done in either direction, but the classic way is from South to North. The trail is broken into parts so that both ends are easily accessible by public transport. A few notes on transport option for this section Wodbyne is easily accessible by public transport, but not by car and Somersby is not close to a train station but has a bus service. Show more

This bushwalk does not follow the exact Great North Walk route but it includes some sections of the GNW from Patonga to Mount Wondabyne. It also passes the very scenic Kariong Brook Falls and waterhole, and includes some remote sections of Brisbane Waters National Park. Show more
