Great North Walk: Bumble Hill Dray Track (Greta Rd, Forest Road and Yarramalong)
2 h 30 min to 2 h 45 min
This section of the Great North Walk explores a section of the historic Bumble Hill Dray track. You will walk along the edge of a ridge mostly through open, dry eucalypt forests and occasionally through moist ferny gullies as well as alongside the base of a tall rock wall. Bumble Hill Dray track was cut during the mid 1800’s to allow teams of bullocks to haul felled cedar to Mangrove Creek, where a barge would take it to Sydney. The oxen are now long gone, but this is a great way to lead into the small Yarramalong township. Let us begin by acknowledging the Awabakal people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
