This is a great family friendly track that will make you feel like you’re out of the city even though you’re right in it! There is plenty of shade and light breezes accompanied by wildlife like ducks and bush turkeys. There are some great picnic spots along the route, even a cafe.Show more

This is the first section of the GNW and best done as a day-walk, but you can camp at Lane Cove National Park (bookings required) to make it into an overnight walk. After about six kilometres of road walking through Hunters Hill you reach Lane Cove National Park, a thin and long green strip through the north of Sydney. You'll never feel like your in the wilderness, but it's fairly pleasant walking, mostly along the Lane Cove River. It's easy to get off route here so download a map ahead of time!Show more
