Walking in Lane Cove National Park

There are many walking tracks in Lane Cove National Park, including part of the Great North Walk and several trails in Pennant Hills Park. They range from short strolls to longer bushwalks of 11 kms. Maps are available from the Park office.

The NPWS has a section updated daily on bushfires and park closures, at

The National Parks and Wildlife Service Discovery Program sometimes runs 'Walks Talks and Tours' in the park . The full program for the northern Sydney region can be found at Chase Alive also runs a 'Meet and Greet' program on some weekends.

Lane Cove National Park Heritage Walk

About the walk
Lane Cove National Park Heritage Walk logoThis walk was conceived to mark the Centenary of Federation in Australia in 2001. It follows pre-existing tracks and roads, between the Park Office and Fiddens Wharf Reserve, with signs highlighting features of historical and natural significance.

Look out for
• the earliest surviving European buildings in the Ku-ring-gai municipality
• the plants used by the Aborigines who occupied the Lane Cove River valley
• the diversity of plants and flowers in any place you might stop and look around
• the few surviving trees from early logging in the area
• the weeds which clog the creeks running in from the streets

The track is approximately 2.5 km and easy grade.
