Spanning between Heathcote and Waterfall Railway Stations this walk experiences many of the different environments that Heathcote National Park has to offer. From ridge tops to creek walking this is a great way to enjoy a day with a perfect spot for a break at the Heathcote Campsite. If the water's deep enough also allow enough time to dip your toes in Heathcote Creek.
About the region
Visit Heathcote National Park at Waterfall, Sydney for self-sufficient bushwalking or camping. The park is easily accessed from Sydney CBD and Royal National Park, making for a great daytrip. The park consists of 2,679 hectares of woodland, predominantly dry schlerophyll forest on the ridges and low heath in the wetter areas. The Hawkesbury sandstone has been carved up by various watercourses like Heathcote Creek, Kingfisher Creek and Myuna Creek, creating deep valleys. The Hawkesbury sandstone has created a sandy, infertile soil that is typical of the Sydney region.
