Are you planning a bushwalk, going somewhere remote or where the weather is extreme? The main track, 250 kilometres (160 mi) in length, runs between the Obelisk in Macquarie Place in Sydney to Queens Wharf in Bicentennial Park in Newcastle and is well sign-posted. Join us for a virtual celebration of the Great North Wood, with an activity for everyone, including talks and film screenings, craft workshops, woodland yoga, a virtual walk, nature writing and spoken word workshops and a baking workshop - all taking place online. This extended walk starts in the village of Millfield and journeys along a ridgeline path littered with fossils and shrouded by endangered bushland. Today's Great North Walk is quite true to the original trail. Created in 1988 to celebrate Australia’s bicentenary, the walk links Sydney with the Hunter Valley and Newcastle.
