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.
