Hard track
This walk follows the Great North Walk from Greta Road to the Cedar Brush track head, via the Bumble Hill Dray Track, passing by the Yarramalong General Store along the way. While most of this walk is on the road, it does provide a good, mostly level bushwalk and a great stroll along a quiet country road, through a pleasant rural community. The Yarramalong general store is a great place to stop for lunch. Yarramalong is worth exploring, and the historic church is worth a look. Let us begin by acknowledging the Awabakal people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
