Mount Ku-ring-gai Track to Berowra Station

Natural Attractions

When it’s time to answer the call of the wild, pack the sandwiches and grab your mates for a rugged bushwalk near Brooklyn. Only an hour from Sydney, it’s a perfect bush getaway taking in several fascinating historic sites. Mount Ku-ring-gai track links Mount Ku-ring-gai and Berowra train stations, so it’s a perfect day out by public transport.

Starting from Mount Ku-ring-gai Train Station, this moderately challenging track leads through dense woodlands past an Aboriginal midden of the Guringai people. Middens are common throughout the park and often found along creek lines and near rock overhangs.

The track leads to historic Appletree Bay, where you’ll follow Cowan Creek to Waratah Bay, the site of Windybank’s Boatshed. A rusting frame is all that’s left of a romantic holiday ‘paradise’. From here, it’s a steep climb to Berowra Station.
