This walk through Lyrebird Gully is a great way to experience the unique ecosystems that make up the spectacular Berowra Valley National Park.

Starting at Mount Ku-ring-gai we'll descend steadily down into the valley. After following Lyrebird Gully Creek as it cascades down, you'll come upon a group of stunning sandstone overhangs that form Lyrebird Caves. As we progress further down the gully you'll be rewarded with beautiful water views and experience a variety of different ecosystems including small forests, rich grasslands and water holes.

When we reach Berowra Creek, we’ll cross over a rare salt marsh, and continue passing through mangrove swamps. Your NPWS guide will tell you all about the large Aboriginal midden found here.

As we head up out of the valley, we’ll arrive at the spectacular Naa Badu lookout. Take a moment to catch your breath and appreciate the stunning view. From here, it’s a steady but sometimes steep uphill walk until we emerge from the bush at the Berowra District Hall; the original school at Berowra (1894). Berowra Railway Station is a short walk from the hall.

Bring at least 1 litre of drinking water, lunch and snacks. It's a good idea to wear comfortable, enclosed shoes and bring a hat, sunscreen and all-weather clothing.
