This short walk follows part of the Ridge Track through the Georges River National Park. The walk follows the first section of the Ridge track before turning down to the Burrawang Flats. From here, the walk follows the driveway and Georges River past a number of picnic areas to return to the start. There are several opportunities for picnics and rest stops along the way. Let us begin by acknowledging the Darug people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
