This local favourite starts from the industrial area in South Lawson. The vegetation is lush and varied, with woodlands of Sydney peppermints, bloodwood and angophoras interspersed with patches of coachwoods, black wattle and ferns. On a hot summer’s day, you can spend a slow afternoon wandering from waterfall to waterfall (there are four within the space of three kilometres), enjoying the shade, beach areas and peaceful surrounds. This walk is on Council reserve, so dogs are permitted.
