This route is just an hour drive from Sydney and well worth the time! This route can be done in either direction, but most people choose the route shown on this page - Cowan to Brooklyn. The opposite direction is more of a workout if that's what you're looking for. The end of the route offers incredible views of the Hawkesbury River. The route ends at the Brooklyn train station so it's easy to get back to your car if you drove. Be sure to bring water!Show more

Great views from a picturesque lighthouse just north of Sydney. This beach and headland hike is a great loop and a chance to get in a quick dip in the Tasman Sea. It's an interesting place to explore, as there are plenty of other trails and side hikes to viewpoints all along the headland.Show more
