This amazing track weaves through dense forest in the Illawarra Escarpment State Conservation Area. Along the way walkers will come across creeks, unique flora, and striking views of Stanwell Park Beach. Note that this route can be started from either end. The route on this page has walkers going out-and-back. You may choose to leave a car or get a ride from the other end. Some hikers choose to walk back on Lawrence Hargrave Drive instead of the trail. There is a separated sidewalk along the road. Dogs and bicycles are not allowed. Please note that some sections of this trail get very steep and narrow. This trek will be difficult for some hikers. Particularly be careful after rains because the trail can get very muddy. This track is accessible by public transportation from Sydney. The trailhead on this page is directly next to the Stanwell Park stop. The other trailhead is near the Coalcliff stop. Walkers may choose to utilize the train for a point-to-point hike.

Challenging as it's very easy to take wrong path (even if you follow the signs/markings). Many side tracks that look just like the main path so beware. Lots of rock scrambling to get the heart rate up and the creek at the bottom is a welcome respite after a hot descent. Allow plenty of time as it took us 3 hours to cover 5km (we took the wrong track back up from the river which added about 30 mins)

A good half day needed to be able to take time to stop and take in views, climb to top of escarpment, swim in creek etc. Best done as a loop rather than out and back.

We must have been the first through this morning...collected many webs along the way. Lovely and green, lots of beautiful trees, lyrebird heard, running water...mossy rocks...this walk has a bit of everything. Need more time next time to enjoy all the small details and have time to look up

Starts off as a challenge, but once past the initial climb and stairs, it’s an easy stroll and you get to enjoy the awesome views

HikingGreat!

Enjoyed this trail thoroughly. I'm not very experienced in hiking so wanted to do something by myself that was challenging just to test myself. Started at Stanwell Park station, the entrance to the track is right on the platform. Initial bit was uphill and was a little exhausting, once you go pass the sign that says "Rough Terrain Map" it gets real challenging. The path in this section is not very prominent and not marked well, inexperienced folks like me are likely to deviate a bit which i did. Eventually managed to get back on track. This goes on till you reach the Stanwell Creek after which the markings and the trail were much clearer and you are unlikely to get lost. Great views of the coast in the second half and then you have an option to continue on the Forest track or go down to Coalcliff. I did the Forest track and finished at Austinmer. Overall a great experience and is definitely recommended. Did it in January so it was dry - no leaches but extremely loud Cicadas throughout (almost deafening at some sections).

I am very fit but a relatively inexperienced bush hiker. This was an incredible experience. I only hiked from Stanwell Park station to Stanwell Creek. It took me about 45 minutes one way, allowing for photos. It was absolutely beautiful, but I got lost on the way back and ended up being there for four hours. I emerged covered in mud, wet through, bitten to death by mosquitoes and bleeding profusely from three leech bites. But it was amazing and I definitely want to do it again.

it was great views. we got lost initially and ended on top of wrong trail but still ended with great views. i was expecting some diverse views was well but over all a fantastic experience. Please make sure you have map downloaded just in case. just stick to the trail.

HikingGreat!

This does not appear to be the full loop walk map, but this walk is a great experience which I would rate as medium not hard. Go prepared with a basic map or download and pay attention and you will be fine. After reaching rail station, cross over and continue down streets to beach and along road to start.

Did this with my almost five year old. Took us 4.5 hours one way (got the train back from Stanwell Park Station). Pretty challenging, especially after lots of rain but fun ! Got lost only once. Not a beginner track, for sure.

I really liked this trail, research before you go, if you start from colecliff there is easy parking and a steady climb, take the forest track to the left... it’s not too hard or overgrown just lots of stairs but some amazing views waiting for you at the top. If you turn right at the Y and not take the forest track, the walk is much longer and you do come across a beautiful creek water falls etc, but take caution it is quite over grown and at times a little challenging. But it is a great walk I am glad I did it, the track is marked out pretty well too just give yourself plenty of time as it is a little steep in areas.

Please people, ignore Joe’s long winded review. This is a beautiful BUSH HIKE. I have walked this trail many times, always barefoot (of course), with no problems. Steep bits, a couple yes, leeches after rain, yes, as I’ve said in a previous review. Would hate to have people turned off an awesome BUSH walk because of someone who didn’t research it first. Enjoy folks!!!!

We started the trail from the southern end and just went to the waterfall/creek before the sun went down. A great track with lots of bush and variety. Very peaceful. We saw 3 people the whole time. Great view of the ocean and the waterfall was flowing. The creek was dry, unfortunately and there were 3 exposed star pickets in the middle of the track south-east of the creek, about 1-4inches tall and hard to see so watch your footing.

Started at the Stanwell end, past the train station. Not long after climbing up, you come to a Y and can either go left or right. If you go left ((like I did) Not the Forest Path) it’ll take you down into the valley. That’s where the swimming hole is and a couple of waterfalls. It had rained last night so there were small sections of the trail that were muddy. Once you cross the creek, you hit a lot of sections that are overgrown/blow downs. The trail is still manageable and is a pretty decent walk. I’ll be hitting it again, taking the Forest Path where the overlooks are.
