Sydney to Thornleigh via Lane Cove Tourist Park
11 h 17 min to 2 days
This overnight walk starts from the Obelisk in Macquarie Park, Sydney, at the official start of the Great North Walk. The walk soon boards the ferry from Circular Quay to Woolwich, and follows the Great North Walk through the streets of Hunters Hill and into the Lane Cove National Park. After staying the night in a caravan park here, the walk backtracks a little, then heads north, winding through the Lane Cove Valley, up to Thornleigh train station. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
