A demanding overnight bushwalk in Nattai National Park, the target of this walk is the narrow summit of Russells Needle, a spectacular sandstone ridge that juts out into the Nattai Valley. It's a tough hike but offers a real wilderness experience not far from Sydney, with secluded camping spots by the Nattai River and great views.
