Cedar Brush to Basin Campsite is a 9.7km, grade 4 One way hike located in Olney State Forest, New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 4 hrs 30 mins to complete.

Hike Summary

This section of the Great North Walk makes a good walk to a comfortable campsite with the section along the Lyrebird Trail by the Wollombi Brook being particularly recommended. From the Cedar Brush track head the walk winds up into the Olney State Forest through bushland (crossing over two moist gullies). Once most of your height is gained this walk follows unsealed road before dropping down into the Wollombi Brook gully. From here the walk follows bush tracks along Lyrebird Trail and to the Basin Campsite.
