Moderate track
Starting from Slade Avenue, Lindfield, this circuit walk takes you along Gordon, Middle Harbour and Moores Creeks mostly via the Two Creeks Track, visiting many little waterfalls along the way. Expect a serene walk along multiple streams where you’ll be accompanied by birdsong and the sound of burbling water throughout the track. From sandstone overhangs to couch-like stone seats and little waterfalls, this walk features many points of interest. The tracks are mostly shaded and well-signposted. Remember to lift your head up every once in a while to catch different angles of the picturesque creeks. Keep in mind that dogs are not allowed on this track. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

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. (clockwise)....

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.
