This continues for a while before the track comes to an intersection with a 5m bush track on the right, leading to the Kingfisher Pool camping ground.

Kingfisher Pool camping ground Alt = m
This campsite is located at a small clearing, just east of the junction of Heathcote and Kingfisher Creeks in Heathcote National Park. The campsite is above the creek on a flat clearing. The creek usually provides plenty of water (treat before use, and check with rangers before setting out) and an opportunity for a swim. At the campground, there is also a small pit toilet and picnic table. Open fires are not permitted, so bring your own fuel stove. Fees are payable in advance for the permit required to stay at this campsite.

From here, the walk turns left and follows the bush track, keeping the creek down to the right as the track drops down a short, steep rock surface. The walk turns right, following the bush track that the winds through the bush for a short while to a large open clearing. From the clearing, the track follows the track marker on the other side through the bush and down to the creek, which it crosses at the rocks and comes up to the signposted intersection of the 'Bullawarring Track'.
Continue straight: From the intersection, this walk follows the bush track, heading north along the left-hand side of the creek.

Continue straight: From the intersection, this walk follows the 'Battery Causeway' arrow on the Bullawarring Track signpost, heading along the bush track which steadily climbs up the side of the valley for a while before crossing the dried-up creek at Python Gully. From here, the track continues along the side of the valley, climbing up the side of the hill for a while before flattening out again high above Heathcote Creek - this can be seen from the occasional rock shelf on the side of the track. The walk winds along to the signposted intersection of the Goanna Track.

The trail winds down a hill to the intersection of the Mirang Road service trail.

Mirang Pool camping ground Alt = 81 m
This campsite is nestled in Heathcote National Park, with walk-in access from Heathcote Station. The campsite is near Mirang Pool on Heathcote Creek - there is a signpost at the top of the stairs, leading down to the pools from the management trail above.

Did this walk 5-3-11, was overgrown in parts and got alot of scratches. Part of the wildlife experience. If you take your time and look for the arrows painted on the rocks you can make your way.

Hi, i just wanted to thank the authors. Fantastic notes - very accurate and useful.

Also, fwiw I just did this walk with my 9-year-old daughter, staying overnight at Kingfisher Pools. It is challenging but very do-able. Beautiful pools and rock formations on the way, as well as some great giant plants. A giant huntsman was living in the dunny at Kingfisher too!

Well done on the notes and making these walks easy to plan for us dads.

Hi Greg
Thanks for the feedback - great to hear that you and your son had a great time. It is great to hear of dads and kids getting out and doing overnight walks together - keep it up.

Hi Wild Walks, I stumbled across this web site a few weeks ago...it's since been added to my favourites. Today was my first forage into "real" bush walking. My wife & I left Waterfall station @ 6:45, to try and beat the heat. Although We have done a lot of walks over the years, we have never done anything like this. We were shocked by the lack of signage on the walk. We went the wrong way at the bottom of the first section (bottom of the steps) and fillowed the service road for probably 500M too far, we eventually realised our error & back tracked, finding the arrow for Heathcote/ Kingfisher. I wasn't convinced the painted arrow was legit, as the track was very scrubby, after awhile it became clearer (400M). It was very comforting to make it to Kingfisher Pool & realise we had it right & had not just stumbled around in The Bush. The next challenge was finding the track after Kingfisher camp site. We had a false start requiring a 100M backtrack when we went straight from the top of the campsite on what we thought was a track. We then came back to the campsite were the marker pole is and started again. We got confused as the track crossed the creek but the notes didn't mention this. We then went the wrong way by turning left on what appeared to be a track, after another 100M the track disappeared...so we backtracked again. We then saw the arrow on the other side of the creek from behind the campsite and followed the track. By this time we realised;
1. The track was very narrow and not necessarily easily found/followed
2. Signs/markers are very few & far between
After a long and intense walk we made it to The causeway had a lovely refreshing swim & lunch. We then followed the rather drab service trail all the way to the bridge over the pipeline and then up the hill to Heathcote. We completely missed the track to Mirang Pool.
All in all an enjoyable but very challenging walk. Total walk time was 5 hours.
What amazes us is how many people would struggle to follow this track??? We may not be experienced bush walkers but neither are we complete novices (Blue Gum Forest, Mount Kembla, etc.) I would imagine a lot of people trying this track would find them in real trouble really easily.
Again thanks for the great site. We are not deterred and we are planning our next Wild Walk!

Cheers Greg & Julie

We did this walk on 5/07/14 and had a great time. it was overgrown in some parts but it was on the flat sections so you can still make good time, didn't really slow us down. We had some backtracks to do in the first 2 kms or so but really that's part of the adventure and some of it can be put down to inexperience - we found our way in not too long. I wouldn't let it deter you from trying this great walk.
I would like to say that this website is fantastic - so much information and helpful guiding - leaps and bounds ahead of the Nation Parks website (what a waste of time!!)
Thanks WildWalks

Was planning to trail run this, but ended up walking and "bush-whacking" a lot of the Bullawaring middle sections. Took 2.5 hrs for 10.5kms. Very slow going. From the pipeline towards Heathcote station is fine, as it's a cycle trail.
Wear long trousers - still have grazed legs and various animal stings 1 week later!
This would be a fantastic walk if they cut back the very overgrown paths. But I won't be going back, even for a walk unless I know there's been some clearing done.

Did this walk in May 2015. Agree with other comments about the trail being very overgrown in the middle section.
Didn't have any troubles following it though.
Larry IP:124.149.35.xxx | 2015-07-26 08:10:14
Today we walked Waterfall to Heathcote for the 3rd time. The Kingfisher Pool to Battery Causeway section is very overgrown. Apart from some trimming at the Kingfisher end over the last 12 months, this has not got any better over the last 3 years. This really spoils the walk as you push through the bush (literally, push through the bush) you have to be watching in front of you to avoid getting whacked in the head by the vegetation rather than looking at the lovely surrounds.

I sent a email whinge to NPWS.

Will next try the Uloola track on the other side of the rail line in the direction Waterfall to Heathcote.

Thanks for the web site. Great resource. Just needs the GPS waypoints.
