Davidson Park to Stepping Stone Crossing walk is a 5.2km, grade 3 one way hike, located in the Garigal National Park, New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 2.5hrs to complete.

Hike Summary

Starting along Lyrebird track at the northern end of Davidson Park picnic area and boat ramp, this walk branches off along the banks of Carroll Creek and across a stepping stone crossing just above the tidal limit, where the Governor Philip walk commences. Once a management trail for the local sand mining industry in the 1950s and 60s, Lyrebird track today offers spectacular views of Middle Harbour Creek.

This walk follows the banks of Middle Harbour Creek before linking up with Carroll Creek, then taking you past the Sydney Water Pipeline, where the creek starts to narrow and the track passes a rock bar crossing; this is Bungaroo, where the expedition camped. About 150m further on, the Stepping Stone Crossing provides access to the Bungaroo Track and uphill to Hunter Avenue, St Ives.
