Part 6 of an 8 Part Series


28.1km / 7h Hike, 2 X Cars. 805m Ascent


We hired 2 cars for this one. Drove to Yarramalong (about 1.5hr out of Sydney City) and dropped off most of the hikers. We then drove both the cars to Watagan Creek, Dropped off one car and returned to Yarramalong in the remaining car.

Upon completion of the hike, we drove back and picked up the 1st car and drove back to Sydney 😅 (this was becoming the common way to do these day/evening hikes)


Trail shoes, about 3L of water(plus hydration tabs), hiking pack with snacks and lunch. Poles, First aide kit, Sunscreen, hiking pants, T-shirt/jacket, GoPro, spare battery and cables and a headlamp

Once again we started the hike late as it took a while to sort the logistics, so we kicked off around 1pm. Was a load of road walking before we hit the trail !

Road Watagan On the road again

Some bush walking, and a lot of fire trail walking at the Watagan end of this section. While the first section was mainly on the road and light trail

We parked car #2 across the road from this exit point. And this was also where we parked car #1 when we started the next hike (Watagan Creek to Watagan Headquarters)

Note there is a gate you need to open and close behind you on this access road Watagan Creek

The last part of this hike into Watagan creek is a 4x4 track and we found it quite dodgy at night. Try and complete it in the daytime if possible
