Join us on our next day hike, exploring the main ridge of Brisbane Water National Park.

Be prepared for a full day hike, traversing 26km, and seeing some spectacular sites on our central coast. Over 60% of this hike is relatively flat, but there are some big hills steep to climb, so poles are recommended.

We meet at the Girrakool Picnic area at 7:30 SHARP , where we will start our hike. Shortly after starting we will pass under the Monolith Cave, then follow our track visiting several lookouts to Scopas Peak, which has some excellent views over Mooney Mooney creek. We will stop for lunch at Mt Wondabyne with fabulous ocean views and surrounding bushland. We will rest on the rocky outcrops while we take heaps of selfies.
After lunch we need to walk a little on the Fire trails as we descend into Patonga beach .Just before arriving at Patonga beach we pass a brilliant lookout called “Broken Bay View”. This large rock platform has a number of large Sydney Red Gums, providing some shade. There are great views across the Hawkesbury River, along Cowan Creek and to West Head. The views to the left extend past Lion Island to Barrenjoey Head and out to the Pacific Ocean. By the end of this hike, your legs should be tired but what a day you would have had !!

We will celebrate our day hike with a quick drink at the Local Beach house before we are taken back to our cars by private transfer (allow 40mins travel). Allow 8 hours for hike and lunch/snack breaks .
Our aim is to have you back at Patonga Beach by 4pm

Assume a 90mins drive from Sydney to Patonga, we can help arrange car pooling. This is a moderately challenging day hike.
