Your day of exploring The Basin area and its rich Aboriginal heritage begins as you meet your guide in pretty Resolute picnic area. Walk together along The Basin track to The Basin Aboriginal art site with its rock engravings, one of the best examples in this remarkable area of 800 Aboriginal sites. Listen as your friendly and passionate guide shares his knowledge about this site and how it links with others nearby.

After a lunch break, stretch your legs by walking through Sydney red gums to Red Hands Cave. Pause with your guide to hear the story behind these beautiful ochre hand-prints. Your final stop is West Head and one of Sydney’s best lookouts to take in stunning ocean and coastal views.
