Cedar Brush track head to the 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 to complete.


This section of the Great North Walk starts from the Cedar Brush track head and winds up into the Olney State Forest following bushtracks and service trails down into the Wollombi Brook gully. From here the walk heads south along the Lyre Bird trail to the Basin Campsite. The Basin Campsite provides more than enough space for large groups to camp as well as a picnic shelter fire place and a toilet. It is a fair drive around for the car shuffle but a nice walk into the campsite.
