It seems with each lockdown, the bushwalking trails get busier and more crowded. We’re fortunate to have many pockets of bushland in Ku-ring-gai, as well as easy to access to some of Sydney’s biggest national parks (36% of addresses in Ku-ring-gai are within 130m of bushland – only the Blue Mountains and Shoalhaven areas have a higher percentage). Here’s a few suggestions for bushwalks you can still do, with a few options that are a bit off the beaten track where you might have a chance of solitude and isolation!
- All bushwalks below start within the Ku-ring-gai LGA – a small number of them cross over into the Northern Beaches LGA, so please check the distance from your address to ensure compliance to NSW Health orders
- For more bushwalking suggestions there’s a much longer list of walks within the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park and Garigal National Park
- For dog-friendly hikes, have a look at Bushwalking with Dogs in Sydney’s North.
