Highlights of this walk include:

  • We'll enjoy spectacular views across Berowra Valley and Marramarra national parks.
  • On a clear day, we'll see the distinctive shape of Mount Banks in the centre of the Blue Mountains.
  • From Berowra, the track heads sharply downhill on its meandering path to Berowra Waters. Berowra Waters used to be an early twentieth century venue for 'day trippers' arriving by steam train from Sydney. Now it’s a modern marina complex. However, the area retains much of its former charm including the vehicular ferry which chugs slowly across Berowra Creek.
  • The final stretch for the day is on a much gentler track, finishing up at Cowan Railway Station.

This is not an easy walk as there are more than 900m of ascents and descents. 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 and insect protection. We’ll be using public transport for one section, so don’t forget your Opal card.
