Bairne Track to Towlers Bay Lookout
Guringai country

2h 15 min to 2h 30 min


↑ 134 m
↓ -134 m

Moderate track
This relatively flat walk takes you through some woodland forest, open shrub and rock platforms to a lookout. The views look over Narrabeen and along Pittwater. The track is well defined, and the views are well worth the walk. Let us begin by acknowledging the Guringai people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Track Notes

Getting started
The track starts just shy of 6.2 km along West Head Road from Coal and Candle Drive, at post number 8. The Bairne management trail meanders westwards along the top of the ridge. The trail is very well defined and pretty flat, it heads through woodlands and open terrain. It then intersects with an unnamed track that heads south (to Towlers Bay lookout). The Bairne trail continues north-east, to an intersection, marked by 'Soldier Point' and 'Portugese track' signs to the left.....
