Moderate track
This walk starts at Silver Mist Park and follows a section of the Prince Henry Cliff Walk. The walk visits Tallawalla Lookout, with great views up the valley, and Honeymoon Lookout. An optional side trip, taking in more views from Banksia Lookout, is great if you are still feeling energetic. Either organise someone to pick you up at Honeymoon Point, or head back to your car along Cliff Drive. Let us begin by acknowledging the Dharug & Gundungurra people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
