This track takes you to one of the most iconic views along the the Great North Walk. From Cowan Station, the walk passes through a variety of environments, with dryer vegetation near the freeway and moister rainforest-like plants near the water. Jerusalem Bay is a pretty area, shared by walkers and boaters, and a great place to relax before the walk back up to the station

Loved this walk! Super easy to do and clearly marked. In the warmer weather will be great to have a swim once you reach the bay at the end.

One of the best views I've seen in NSW. Well worth a visit.
