About The Adventure

Join us for this beautiful, fully guided and supported 11 km hike from Berowra to Kuring-gai. From the ridges above Cowan Creek, this walk takes in some great lookouts (especially around Mt Kuring-gai), as well as enjoying a stunning bush track along the creek. We'll take the time to enjoy the many rest areas along the way, stopping to catch our breath, take in the beautiful scenery, and capture a few photos. This track gives hikers a good taste of what Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park has to offer. The hike will take 5- 6 hours in total, including lunch and afternoon tea breaks and time to enjoy our surroundings.
