Hard track
Collier's Causeway is a fantastic walk with many views of the Kanimbla Valley and varied scenery. The track mostly travels under the imposing cliffs between Centennial Glen and Porters Pass, with waterfalls, ferny glens and heath flowers along the way. The track is a great one-way trip from Bundarra St to Burton Ave with access to many climbing areas along the way. Let us begin by acknowledging the Dharug & Gundungurra people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Track Notes
Turn by turn instructions & maps
Getting started
From the corner of Bundarra St and Eveleigh Ave, this walk heads down the hill keeping the houses on the right and bush on the left. The track soon leads to a telegraph pole and track on the right, below Gordon Ave.
From the intersection below the telegraph pole, this walk heads down the hill, keeping the valley on the left. The walk drops down boardwalked track for some time before entering the heath. Winding down through the heath, the track opens out onto Centennial Glen Creek, which it crosses to the other side near the seats and rock cliff.
From the creek, this walk heads towards the broken seats under the cliffs and continues around the hillside. The track soon leaves the cliffs to meander through the heath for a short time, before coming to a rocky surface painted with arrows for 'Porters Pass' and 'Fortress Rock'.....
