Please note

Willunga Trig walking track is an ideal introduction for new visitors to Sydney. It’s an exceptional short walk that leads to Willunga Trig lookout, the highest point in Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, offering magnificent panoramic views of the park, bushland, and waterways.

This easy track leads through dry heathland of banksia and grevillea. As you start to climb, the heath gives way to woodland of scribbly gum and red bloodwood. At the top, you’ll be rewarded with spectacular views across the entire park and Pittwater, to Mona Vale. In the distance, you’ll see the outline of Sydney and Chatswood to the south.

When you’ve soaked in the views, and thoughts turn to a tasty snack, why not head down to The Basin picnic area. Or, if you’re feeling energetic, try nearby Towlers Bay walking track.
