The walk starts at the southern end of the Wodi Wodi track and then takes up to the top of the escarpment where the Forest walk begins. This walk requires a moderate level of fitness as the track is steep. It is on a formed track with some obstacles. There is no climbing or ladders involved. The track is graded at 4 on the NPA scale. The walk will take around 3.5 hours with a break at the top of the Escarpment for a snack and to take in the views.

In compliance with current COVID-safe requirements, this activity will be restricted to 30 participants and we will need to prepare a list of all attendees for potential contact tracing requirements. After you RSVP, you will receive details of the meeting location.

2020 has been a really challenging year for Australians and our natural heritage.

So our group is hosting a local picnic at Bicentennial Park (meeting at Lake Belvedere), to reconnect with nature lovers in the area and the greenery that makes this part of Sydney special, and to wrap up 2020.

Come along to our picnic where you can meet like-minded people in the area. We'll discuss how we're contributing to local, state and national Wilderness Society campaigns, and talk through our plans for 2021.
