Guide | Great North Walk (Sydney)

The Great North Walk comprises of multiple day hikes between Sydney and Newcastle. It is a total walk of 250 kilometers. I have been trying to do the small part of this walk – a walk of 75 (approx.) kilometers along the Lane Cove River Valley and Berowra River Valley. The best way to do these walks are to divide them in between the weekends.
