The Basin A 2 hrs 30 mins 5.6 km re­turn, mod­er­ate track

Monthly Chronicle - - Outdoor Lifestyle -

The Basin Track is the only land ac­cess to The Basin, Ku-ring-gai Chase Na­tional Park’s only for­mal camp­site. The walk mostly fol­lows a man­age­ment trail and heads across the plateau away from West Head Road, with a great side trip to Abo­rig­i­nal rock en­grav­ings and The Basin Dam. The Basin it­self is a great place for a swim or overnight stay. There’s a ferry ser­vice from the Basin if you don’t want to walk back up. The Abo­rig­i­nal rock en­grav­ing site is about 400m into the walk, so you don’t have to do the full walk. Full notes and maps:
