Women's Cowan to Brooklyn Day Hike Friday 17th May

Travel & Outdoor


Experience a day of stunning scenery at Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, renowned for its exceptional walking paths just outside of Sydney.

The Cowan to Brooklyn trail, a segment of the renowned Great North Walk, features an Aboriginal midden, follows Cowan Creek, and includes easy-to-navigate single tracks and fire trails descending into Brooklyn. Starting at Cowan station, our group will head to Jerusalem Bay, traverse ridges, enjoy coffee breaks, and then descend into Brooklyn. This scenic one-way journey offers multiple water views, a loop around Brooklyn Dam, diverse flora, and includes a healthy lunch.

Upon arriving in Brooklyn, we'll take the train back to Cowan station to conclude our hike.

"Our guide Molly was fantastic! She is obviously very passionate about her job and her patience and understanding of mature women walking was outstanding - her people skills and her knowledge of the local area was fabulous. 10/10 day on the trail. Thanks for the laughs and a great adventure!"
