Pre-school­ers Lakes of Cher­ry­brook:

If you’re a lit­tle un­sure about this whole bush­walk­ing thing, start easy with a visit to the play­ground, pic­nic area (and nearby cafe) at Lakes of Cher­ry­brook. There’s a short easy walk that loops around the lake. 450m cir­cuit walk. http://wild.tl/tlocl

Cross­lands: Head down to Cross­lands for a BBQ, a play and walk along the board­walk - you’ll feel a mil­lion miles away from home. 950 re­turn walk. http://wild.tl/ct­bcl

Bob­bin Head: Spend a few hours down at Bob­bin Head, visit the play­ground, go fishing and en­joy this walk through the man­groves, past some abo­rig­i­nal axe grind­ings, to the rain­for­est creek. 1.6km re­turn walk. http://wild.tl/bhrw

Pri­mary aged kids

Mid­dle Head: Not so much a bush­walk as a cool place to ex­plore. Mid­dle Head has a scat­ter­ing of forts, gun em­place­ments, and cool his­tory to wan­der around. 2km+ ex­plor­ing cir­cuit walk. http://wild.tl/1d

Wahroonga: If your kids have a bit of stamina and have done a cou­ple of walks, this is a pleas­ant track along­side a lovely creek that gives a sense of re­mote­ness. Fin­ish with a play­ground and lunch at Bob­bin Head. 6.5km one way walk. http:// wild. tl/gt

Sydney Har­bour: Why not make a day of it? A walk with a va­ri­ety of bush­land, har­bour views and lux­u­ries along the way. Start with a ferry trip, walk for about 1km to dis­cover a gun em­place­ment. Stop for lunch half­way to en­joy the play­ground, beach, and cafe. Less than 2km after lunch, find more gun em­place­ments and tun­nels at Ge­orges Head then fin­ish with fish and chips (and a splash) at Bal­moral Beach. 6.8km one-way walk. http://wild.tl/tztbb There are hun­dreds of op­tions, dis­cover more at www.wild­walks.com
