Great North Bushwalk with Dr Peter Weston

This challenging bushwalk is not for the faint-hearted!

Join Dr Peter Weston, Systematic Botanist at the National Herbarium of New South Wales, for a challenging adventure along the Jerusalem Bay track, from Cowan Station to Hawkesbury River Station, in the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park. Perfect for the experienced bushwalker, this Grade four 11km trail winds through dense bushland, up and down steep tracks with breath-taking scenic wilderness views. Your hard work will pay off as you hunt for mid-winter flowers including banksias and Boronia ledifolia. Learn about these spectacular species from Peter as he shares his knowledge and expertise with you on this exciting excursion.

Meeting point: Cowan Station

Please bring a picnic lunch, water and refreshments to enjoy in a bush. Dress for the weather and wear a hat, suncream and comfortable walking shoes. Don't forget to bring your binnoculars!
