The Basin is a 5.6km, grade 3 Return hike located in Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 2 hrs 30 mins to complete.
The Basin Track is the only land access to The Basin Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park’s only campsite. The walk follows mostly management trail and heads across the plateau away from West Head Rd with a great side trip to Aboriginal rock engravings and The Basin Dam. This is a nice walk heading through the heath of the plateau and down through the forest to the large campsite and facilities of The Basin. The Basin itself is a great place for a swim or overnight stay. There is a ferry service from the Basin.
