The trail section from Cowan station to Brooklyn is part of the iconic Great North Walk. You ll cross paths with Aboriginal midden, follow the banks of Cowan creek and enjoy easy to walk single tracks and fire trail descending into Brooklyn.
After meeting with your guide at Cowan station, our group will make our way to the stunning Jerusalem Bay, climb up over a series of ridges, stop for cups of coffee, before descending into Brooklyn. This walk is a great one-way trip from station to station with numerous water views, including a circumnavigation of Brooklyn Dam whilst enjoying a wonderful diversity of flora along the way and a healthy lunch.
We will stop plenty of times along the way, as well as beverage at the Brooklyn pub while we wait for the train back to Cowan, why not?
"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!"
