About this event

TRIP HIGHLIGHTS

  • Take in the spectacular Jerusalem Bay views
  • Embark on a scenic day walk from Cowan to Brooklyn
  • Soak up expansive views over Ku-Ring-Gai National Park

ABOUT

The trail section from Cowan station to Brooklyn is part of the iconic Great North Walk. You’ll cross paths with Aboriginal midden, follow the banks of Cowan creek and enjoy easy to walk single tracks and fire trail descending into Brooklyn.

After meeting with your guide at Cowan station, our group will make our way to the stunning Jerusalem Bay, climb up over a series of ridges, stop for cups of coffee, before descending into Brooklyn. This walk is a great one-way trip from station to station with numerous water views, including a circumnavigation of Brooklyn Dam whilst enjoying a wonderful diversity of flora along the way… and a healthy lunch.

We will stop plenty of times along the way, as well as beverage at the Brooklyn pub while we wait for the train back to Cowan, why not?
