This walk starts from the end of the Fitzpatrick Park driveway and follows the Georges River. The walk heads downstream along the waters edge, through the park and across the bridge, to the half way point at Henry Lawson Drive. From here the walk continues along a series of bush tracks, winding along the ridge, around to the Georges River National Park driveway. Let us begin by acknowledging the Darug people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
