Fairfax Walk is a 700m, grade 1 Circuit hike located in Sydney Harbour National Park New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 30 mins to complete.


This great wheelchair-accessible walk starts from the car park at the end of the North Head Scenic Drive and follows a concrete footpath that winds around the tip of North Head in a big loop passing four fantastic lookouts before returning to the car park. The Fairfax Track is also an excellent vantage point for keen whale watchers. The whales pass by twice annually heading north in June and July and again when they return to the Antarctic in August and October.
