Here are some highlights:

  • There will be a steep downhill route where you'll follow the path through lyrebird country. From here, we’ll emerge at Berowra Creek near Crosslands Reserve.
  • Shortly into the walk you'll come across Calna Bridge. Here you'll see spectacular scenery of a wooden pathway passing over a delicate salt marsh.
  • We'll continue our journey north along Berowra Creek for most of the day.
  • If we're on time, we’ll have lunch at the subterranean 'sandstone settee' just above Sams Creek. From here we'll climb to Naa Badu lookout to see the breathtaking views of track we just traversed. Naa Badu means 'see water' and is distinctive to the Darug People.
  • The last part of our journey will be a steep climb to the top of the ridge. This will lead us into beautiful Berowra where you'll get a chance to stop for a coffee near the station.

Bring at least 2 litres of drinking water, lunch and snacks. It's a good idea to wear enclosed shoes and bring a hat, rain gear, sunscreen, insect protection and emergency contact information. We'll be using public transport for one section, so don't forget your Opal card.
