Track Notes
Turn by turn instructions & maps
Getting started
From Slade Ave (just north of Tryon Rd), this walk follows the 'Two Creeks Track' arrow along the alley way, passing another 'Two Creeks Track' sign over a tiny bridge and into the bush. The track soon comes to a sandstone rocky outcrop, where it heads down some stairs to a large sandstone overhang, supported by a number of stone pillars.....
Turn map Directions & comments
Start.
After 35 m pass the "Macks Place" (10 m on your left).
After another 120 m veer left.
After another 110 m pass the shelter (on your left).
After another 25 m find the "Sandstone Pillar overhang" (8 m on your right).
Sandstone Pillar overhang
Sandstone Pillar overhang

This sandstone overhang is of particular note, due to the stone pillar supports that appear to be reinforcing it. Prior to WW1, members of the army built these pillars and surrounding tracks as part of their training. It appears that this was added to during the depression, with further sandstone masonry work. Their efforts have resulted in a Lara Croft reminiscent ruin - OK, maybe a bit of an exaggeration, but the cave is a highlight of the tracks in the area.

There are several open grassy areas and a few footpaths exploring the rocky outcrops. The track along the foreshore is mostly fenced, and is a great way of exploring Middle Harbour Creek. There are electric BBQ's, a picnic shelter and a drinking fountain, down by the water at the northwestern end of the park.
