The Great North Walk runs essentially from the centre of Sydney right up to Newcastle, some 300 km or so away. The 100 km or so that are within Sydney runs almost exclusively through National Parkland.

We headed off with a few hardy lab members for a 2-day walk on part of the trail - Between Roselands and Mt Kurringai, camping at Crosslands Reserve. Weather was great, although a touch nippy in the evening (it was July after all!).
