Heathcote to Audley


Passing through scrub and heath this track goes into the Royal National Park along a well managed bush track passing great pools and sections of creek at Karloo Pools and Uloola Falls. With some lovely rest spots at both of these places (especially with the toilet at Uloola) this walk is very pleasant. Coming into Audley there are great views of the Hacking River and once at Audley the visitor centre is a good spot to grab a bite to eat.
