A one-walk along the Little Digger Track and Two Creeks Track, from East Lindfield to Roseville. Along the way we explore a "secret cave", waterfalls and Aboriginal hand stencils.
Allenby Park is a small but relatively unspoilt patch of bushland in the Northern Beaches. Walking trails provide access to rainforest, a picturesque creek and waterfall and nice rock formations.
The relatively unknown Wedgewood Fire Trail in Cowan ends at a large rock platform, which offers filtered bush views. It's not the most exciting trail, but offers some great wildflower displays in Spring.
A relatively short and easy ranger-guided bushwalk at Muogamarra, the Bird Gully Walk descends into a valley where it crosses Muogamarra Creek. You'll see wildflowers, birdlife and some Aboriginal grinding grooves,
The Bantry Bay Loop is a varied loop, which passes the Bantry Bay Aboriginal engravings next to the Engravings Track. It then descends to Bantry Bay along the Timber Getters Track and returns via the scenic Bluff Track.
The Barrenjoey Lighthouse Walk is a short, easy and popular loop walk that offers sweeping views over the Barrenjoey peninsula, Broken Bay and the Hawkesbury River.

An untracked route to Orphan Rock, a natural sandstone pillar near Scenic World. Once the most popular lookout in the Blue Mountains, this vantage point is now derelict and abandoned.
One of the many routes through the Blue Labyrinth, the two-day walk from Faulconbridge to Glenbrook in the lower Blue Mountains combines tracks along Sassafras and Glenbrook Creeks with sweeping views from Lost World Lookout. It's a varied walk with lots of potential camping sites.
One of the longer bushwalks in the Muogamarra Nature Reserve, the walk to Peats Bight combines the views from Deerubbin Lookout with the historic Peats Bight crater.
The Pylons Loop from Warrimoo to the St Ives Wildlife Garden is a varied and partly off-track loop. It links the Warrimoo Track, Ryland Trail, Callamine Trail and Showground Trail and makes use of a number of fire trails that service electricity pylons.
