Ever wanted to walk all 260kms of the Great North Walk that links Sydney to Newcastle? We felt it was time to put it all together. Come join us this May/June and August/September (TBC).
We plan to cover the entire GNW in sections aiming to hike over weekends and pick up where we left off from the previous weekend.
The first 150kms look something like this (and will be updated as we go along). Full details will be published in our weekly newsletter.

That is Stage One done! Planning is underway for Stage Two. Any feedback welcome before we put it together. Most likely the final 100kms will be done over 3 weekends or as one final push. Contact Fee to let her know your thoughts.
