Sydney's Heathcote National Park is known for its excellent bushwalking, and Bullawarring walking track is undoubtedly one of the jewels of the Sutherland Shire. Ideal for experienced bushwalkers, this rough track, with short steep sections, takes in beautiful bushland, glistening freshwater swimming holes, and craggy ridges.
Stop for a break beside the tranquil pools at Kingfisher Pool picnic area - in summer, a dip in the refreshing pools is a special treat. Birdwatching is at its best in spring, when nectar-loving honeyeaters and wattlebirds are attracted to the blossoming wildflowers in the surrounding heath.
Choose to return via Mooray walking track for a loop walk or continue along Pipeline trail at Battery Causeway, until you reach the natural pools. Alternatively, you can keep walking north along Pipeline trail to Goburra track to join Oliver Street, and head back via Heathcote train station.

About the region
Visit Heathcote National Park at Waterfall, Sydney for self-sufficient bushwalking or camping. The park is easily accessed from Sydney CBD and Royal National Park, making for a great daytrip. The park consists of 2,679 hectares of woodland, predominantly dry schlerophyll forest on the ridges and low heath in the wetter areas. The Hawkesbury sandstone has been carved up by various watercourses like Heathcote Creek, Kingfisher Creek and Myuna Creek, creating deep valleys. The Hawkesbury sandstone has created a sandy, infertile soil that is typical of the Sydney region.
