Take on the last leg of the challenging Great North walk in 2019. Here are some highlights:

  • The track takes us once again into the Hawkesbury River Valley on Mooney Mooney Creek
  • We'll head under the impressive Pacific Motorway bridge across Mooney Mooney Creek
  • Leaving the sounds and sites of the motorway behind, we'll follow the track along Mooney Mooney Creek gently upstream. We'll reach a massive rock platform above a waterfall, where we'll enjoy our last lunch.
  • Finally, the track heads uphill past Gosford's original water supply dam and on to Somersby. With our walking journey completed, we'll catch the late bus back to Gosford.

Remember to bring lunch, snacks, 2 litres of drinking water and your Opal card for train and bus travel.
