Bushwalking - Sunday Adventure Bushwalks Package - Sydney

Escape to the great outdoors with our resident bushwalking guide, Greg Williams, who has been leading bushwalks around Sydney for over 33 years. Each term, Greg will take you on four magnificent hikes around the Sydney and Greater Sydney Basin.

Why not add some adventure to your life and reward yourself with bushwalks that will take you to some of the most awesome places! Take on the journey across the indigenous lands of the Cammeraygal, visited tall forested valleys and gullys, sidle down the Sugarloaf Range, and explore the Grand Canyons in the Blue Mountains.

This term’s bushwalks vary from easy to moderately challenging. Take your pick of the walks or work your way through the four different experiences that this term has to offer.

The Bushwalking - Sunday Adventure Bushwalks Package includes all bushwalks for this term at a discounted price. You can also book each bushwalk individually.

Each walking trail is suitable for most fitness levels with various half day and full day bushwalks available. Our bushwalks are tailor made for Macquarie Community College giving you a variety of walks from which to choose and are usually different every term - you'll probably never walk the same trail twice!

During our bushwalks you’ll become abuzz with nature's feel good endorphins whilst enjoying secluded habitats, historic sites with artefacts, lush wet tree lined gullies with waterfalls and cascading brooks with isolated freshwater pools. You'll have opportunities to spot native animals and see majestic mountains from atop of awe inspiring lookouts.

All bushwalks have morning tea provided with tea, coffee and delicious chocolate treats available.

Macquarie Community College operates from a range of venues across northern and western Sydney. We have campuses in Blacktown, Carlingford, Chatswood, Mt Druitt, Richmond and Ryde. Enrol today or enquire now!
