This challenging return-style walk sets out to find the elusive Hairy Geebung, a very rare plant found only in the Hornsby Shire. Along the way we’ll follow a rough, bolder strewn trail along the Calna Creek gully, from its saltwater influences up beyond the rocky waterfalls to the pleasant freshwater sections in the classic sandstone valleys that dominate Berowra Valley National Park.

Please note: this is a Grade 4 walk (medium/hard). It may contain steeper, rougher terrain or a longer distance along defined tracks without major modification to the ground. It may involve short sections of rock scrambling and is suitable for walkers with a moderate level of fitness over 16 years of age. There is no train station close to this event.
