Cedar Brush to Basin Campsite (GNW)

New South Wales
Many walks are currently closed due to COVID-19. Please,
  • check the walk's official website to confirm if the track is open
  • turn back if it looks like the track is too busy when you get there

This section of the Great North Walk makes a good walk to a comfortable campsite, with the section along the Lyrebird Trail by the Wollombi Brook being particularly recommended. From the Cedar Brush track head, the walk winds up into the Olney State Forest through bushland (crossing over two moist gullies). Once most of your height is gained, this walk follows unsealed road before dropping down into the Wollombi Brook gully. From here, the walk follows bush tracks along Lyrebird Trail and to the Basin Campsite

Comments

Not too difficult. Some nice scenery. Saw several lyrebirds in this area. The section north of Walkers Ridge Forest Rd (to Basin Campsite and the next section of the GNW) was closed for harvesting.
