|11km Circuit northern lookout|
A beautiful walk along part of the 11km Circuit walk, climbing up through a beautiful moist gully before emerging to drier forest and a nice viewpoint. The walk provides a great variety of scenery with a mixture of vegetation and some great boulder and cliff scenery along the way. The climbs and descents are pretty steep at times but not too long.

Dharug National Park Link to official closures and fire bans page
Named after the traditional custodians (the Darug People), this park has much history and some great sandstone formations. The wildflowers in spring add a wonderful touch of colour to the bushland. The Old Great North Road including its quarries, bridges and other features improves access and provides a great deal of interest for visitors. Close to Sydney and Gosford, it feels like stepping back in time when visiting this park.
