The walks below cover some of the high points of this wonderful walk.

Sydney’s indigenous and colonial history is ever-present and the Great West walk provides walkers with a totally different and unexpected view of Western Sydney from colonial mansions to exotic gardens and she-oak shaded strolls along cool waterways.
