Galston Gorge to Mt Kuring-gai is a 12.6km, grade 4 One way hike located in New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 5 hrs 30 mins to complete.
This walk follows the eastern side of the steep Berowra Creek valley from Galston Gorge to Crosslands and then heads over the ridge to follow Lyrbird Gully up to the train station at Mt Kuring-gai. This enjoyable section of The Great North Walk spends most of the time enjoying the wide tidal creeks in the deep valleys. There are many grass trees and sandstone caves to enjoy as well as several lovely places to camp. Crosslands provides road access a chance to fill up the water bottle and an optional side trip to motel style accommodation at Crosslands Conventions centre.
