Gore Creek bushland walk

Our urban walks take us past a variety of locations. We started this walk from St.Leonards station (around 3Km from North Sydney) then through Gore Hill Park and Gore Hill Memorial Cemetery (left).

We descended into Lane Cove Bushland Park  only a few hundred meters from busy Pacific Highway. It is a steep sided and narrow bushland remnant, which starts on a tributary of Gore Creek, leading to Gore Creek Reserve near the mouth of the Lane Cove River.

(right) We wondered why our walk leader had told us to "bring a torch" for this walk.

Lillypilly Falls (above), once a popular swimming and picnic spot, is still a pretty spot, but is now diminished by development.  It is named after the Acmena smithii trees which grow in the area.
