Who would believe there is a fabulous bush walk in Chatswood? That's why it is called Chatswood Charms, a delightful hike in the bushy area of Chatswood West.

We find creeks, waterfalls, fabulous birdlife and lots of steps. It is easy to take a wrong turn. I hear many stories of people losing their way, so ensure you keep up with the leader, or you will need to get an Uber back to the car!

Harbour Wonders, Lavender Bay
Monday 3rd June 7am

Hike Coach : Sonia

Starting from Lavender Bay we will explore the harbour front. Lavender Park has some tough stairs and ramps that we might use. However, there is also access to the foreshore trails and the Harbour Bridge which we can hike over to explore Barangaroo or the Botanical Gardens.

At other times we will do lots of secret trails and stairs while exploring the areas around Millers Point and Sawmillers Reserve which are close to Lavender Bay.
Allow 2 hours for the hike. Distance will vary from 7.5 to about 9 km depending on the route selected by your coach.
