Easy track
This short and fairly flat walk starts from the popular Honeman's picnic area and follows the Sid Pulsford Walking Track, then another trail to Warriwarri Lookout. The lookout is overgrown and provides no real view. A short distance beyond the signposted lookout is a rocky outcrop that provides some filtered views of the district. A nice walk through the dry ridge top forest, just don't expect grand views. Let us begin by acknowledging the Darkinjung & Guringai people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Getting started
From the car park next to the mud brick building, this walk heads in front of the mud brick building and follows the path to the toilet block. Here, the walk heads across the grass between the picnic table (under the tree on the left) and the BBQ shelter (on the right) to the far end of the clearing, near another picnic table, to find the 'Sid Pulsford Walking Trail' sign.....

Honeman's Rock
Honeman's Rock

Honeman's Rock (aka Honeyman's Rock) is a large rock outcrop in front of the mud brick building, in the Honeman's Rock Picnic area. The exposed section of rock is 60m long and about 30m wide, with the western side having a significant unfenced drop. The rock is named after Cecil Lyle Honeman who became a lease holder on the mountain in 1962. The rock has a large depression that once filled with water, and a drain has been dug to keep the pool empty and clear of rubbish.
