Patonga to Staples Lookout is a 17km, grade 4 One way hike located in Brisbane Water National Park New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 6 hrs 30 mins to complete.

Summary

This great walk explores much of the main ridge ridge running through Brisbane Water National Park. The walk visits a number of great lookouts and has two worthy side trips one up to the top of Mt Wondabyne and another to the falls in Kariong Brook. The walk requires a bit of planning for transport but is well worth a car shuffle. Allow time to relax and enjoy the views.
