Lady Carrington Drive

Royal National Park

This walk follows the historic Lady Carrington Drive along the Hacking River. The road has been closed to traffic for some time now and provides a great way for walkers (and mountain bikers) to explore the rich area of Royal National Park. The side of the management trail is dotted with fantastic natural sandstone formations, historic features, picnic areas and grand native and introduced trees.

Nice picnic grounds and scenery on the way. Be careful after it rains because the track gets very muddy.
