UntitledFrom leisurely strolls to challenging hikes, a new bushwalking guide reveals the best trails the scenic and tranquil Georges River area in Macarthur has to offer.

Located near Campbelltown in the historic Macarthur region, just 45 minutes from Sydney CBD, the Georges River was an important focal point for indigenous life and culture, providing food and transport as well as dreamtime significance for those living in the area. In the early 17th century, European settlers migrated to the region and while much of the catchment was cleared for farming and housing, the land adjoining the river has remained relatively untouched. unnamed (10)

A 30km mountain bike route through Dharawal National Park is also included.
