Great North Walk - Sydney to North Ryde - 5 April 2015
Sydney to Boronia Park
This section of the walk is the southernmost stretch of the Great North Walk and spends much of the time exploring the scenic and historic urban areas around Woolwich and Hunters Hill. Starting at the birth place of modern Sydney you soon enjoy a ferry ride across the world renowned harbour, passing the Opera House and heading under the Harbour Bridge. Once on dry land again you will explore the streets and some lovely pockets of remnant bushland of this peninsula. There are a few chances to stop at a cafe along the way before coming to open area at Boronia Park.
Boronia Park to North Ryde
This walk gives you the chance to explore the bush and wetlands
alongside the Lane Cove River, from Boronia Park to the new underground
train station at North Ryde. You will visit several mangrove wetlands,
some dry eucalypt forests and have the opportunity to rest and fill up
your water bottle at a few well maintained parks. This walk follows the
GNW most of the way, until soon after passing under Epping Road where
you take a detour up through the Riverside Corporate Park to Delhi Rd
and the train station.
