Walk
4 h to 2 days

Following Heathcote Creek, this walk is a great overnight walk, often used to introduce new walkers to overnight hikes. A well-signposted and defined track leads you to a campsite with a reasonable level of facilities. There are great views of Heathcote Creek along the way, and many of Heathcote's varied environments to enjoy. Definitely worth the time to head down to Lake Eckersley, which is perfectly placed for lunch on the first day. Keep in mind that you can do this as a one day walk as well. Let us begin by acknowledging the Dharawal people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
