    Onwards towards Newcastle, a bit at a time. This stage is a little shorter than the last two, though it's a bit up-and-downy still. Station-to-station again, so easy transport. We descend onto the Great North Walk proper, and pass through Berowra Waters, then up a bit for some fine water views from above. Then a few more ups and downs and out to Cowan. Note the Grade 3 rating, but note also that it calculates out to be pretty close to the Grade 3 - Grade 4 boundary. (Happy to conduct an on-walk workshop on the complexities of grading science, if you're specially keen!)

    Throughout the 20th century, the buildings and public spaces of Scheyville played host to many different people, groups and projects.  Step out of your car and into the past on this walk that gives you a glimpse of Scheyville’s fascinating history. See relics of buildings where Australian city boys and young British men learned farming skills. Explore places such as the Casual Labour Farm, the Dreadnought Dining Hall and Dormitory Buildings and the Government Agricultural Training Farm, which operated from the early 1900s to 1939. The Scheyville Camp precinct has a strong historical value, but also a strong emotional one. Residents came to the site during times of great change in their lives - the site is a legacy to these people. Scheyville may be a National Park now, but the site’s heritage is as clear as ever in the Scheyville Camp precinct. We will wander around old buildings and learn about the past way of life here, via interpretive signs.  This activity is a must for all history buffs! Following our exploration of the Migrant Precinct we will head over to Pitt Town for lunch and a history walk around the town. When registering please provide your membership number and mobile phone number.
