If you're looking for a quick getaway amongst pristine bushland without having to travel far, visit O’Hares Creek lookout walking track in Dharawal National Park, just south of Campbelltown. A flat and easy family friendly walk, enjoy a breath of fresh air on a day out, with birdwatching opportunities and scenic gorge views once you reach the end.

Following a flat bitumen track, keep an eye out for goannas and wallabies as you pass through open woodland full of tall scribbly gums and red bloodwoods. This walking track takes you to O'Hares Creek lookout, where you’ll discover deep gorges and a rugged landscape carved from Hawkesbury sandstone.

Spring is a great time to visit; the windswept heathland bursts with colour, attracting nectar-loving birds such as the new Holland honeyeater. Bring along a sandwich and if you’ve worked up an appetite, you can enjoy a light lunch while taking in the scenic views from the lookout.
