When it's time to answer the call of the wild, pack the sandwiches and grab your mates for a rugged bushwalk near Berowra. Only an hour from Sydney, it’s a great bush getaway taking in several fascinating historic sites. Mount Ku-ring-gai track links Mount Ku-ring-gai and Berowra train stations, so it's a perfect day out by public transport.
Starting from Mount Ku-ring-gai Train Station, this moderately challenging track leads through dense woodlands past an Aboriginal midden. Middens are common throughout the park and often found along creek lines and near rock overhangs.
The track branches off at Cowan Creek. You can either take a short walk south to historic Appletree Bay or follow the creek north to Waratah Bay, the site of Windybank's Boatshed. A rusting frame is all that's left of a romantic holiday 'paradise'. From here, it's a steep climb to Berowra Station.
