Artarmon Station to The Spit Bridge
This is an urban walk with various bush tracks, shared paths with cyclists and parks with lots of dogs. We will visit the Willoughby Incinerator (designed by Walter Burley Griffin, the designer of Canberra), Henry Lawson's Cave, and the ruins of "Fatty Dawson's" Piggery. We will also experience the underside of the Northbridge Suspension Bridge soaring above us. All of this is combined with great views of Middle Harbour and the homes of the wealthy. On arrival at The Spit we can inspect the memorial to the ship "Lucinda" and the plaque commemorating the boxer Les Darcy. This walk involves one set of steep stone steps (40 metres down), and three headlands with ascents/descents of 30, 50 and 40 metres. The overall descent from Artarmon is 70 metres.
