This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Bar Island Historic Site, Berowra Creek Hawkesbury River, Berowra Waters, Hornsby, New South Wales Australia
Sitting right in the middle of the meeting of the three great waterways: Marramarra, Berowra, and Hawkesbury, Bar Island has always been a special place for the inhabitants of the river. A meeting place for the indigenous nations has left a substantial midden, and the European settlers have left the ruins of an old church and a cemetery.
Duration: 1 hour
Stop At: Muogamarra Nature Reserve, Old Pacific Highway, Sydney, New South Wales Australia
Hike to top of the ridge behind Milsons Passage - we can either take a quick route up the trail, (~ 30 minutes), or the long route through the bush (90 minutes). The views at the top are astonishing.
