(0 km) Heathcote Railway Station to Int of Wilson Parade and Karloo Track
Track: Moderate - road
Length = 200 m Time = 3 mins
Climb = 1 m Descent = -2 m
From Heathcote Station, this walk heads south-east along Wilson Parade following the railway tracks. Shortly after passing the emergency services centre, the track comes to an intersection with a bush track signposted as the 'Karloo Track'.

(0.2 km) Int of Karloo Track and Wilson Pde to Karloo Pools
Track: Moderate - bushtrack
Length = 2.58 km Time = 1 hr 6 mins
Climb = 87 m Descent = -222 m
Turn left : From the intersection of Wilson Pde and the bush track at the large sign saying 'Karloo Track', this walk heads east away from the road. Shortly after, this turns to the north and goes behind the Rural FIrefighting Station (Emergency Services Centre), then the track turns back to the east and continues along the bush track. Gradually this turns to the south and goes slightly downhill until reaching Heathcote Brook. Just after crossing the brook, the track comes to an intersection with another bush track.
Veer left: From the intersection, this walk heads east. The track gradually rises onto the ridgeline and there are some reasonably good views over the surrounding valley. The track continues east in this manner then begins to gradually drop down off the ridge along the slightly rougher bush track until reaching Karloo Pools. This would be a good spot to take a break and get your toes wet.

Ulloola Falls Campsite Alt = 132 m
This clearing has six camping sites (maximum of 18 people), and wood fires are not allowed. The site has a toilet, and there is usually water in the creek (treat before drinking). In drier periods, contact rangers regarding water availability. Pre-arranged camping permits are essential.

Track: Moderate - bushtrack
Length = 2.26 km Time = 45 mins
Climb = 125 m Descent = -47 m
Continue straight: From the intersection, this walk crosses Kangaroo Creek at Karloo Pools, then follows the 'Waterfall via Uloola Falls' arrow up the hill between the rocks and along the rocky bush track. The track climbs up the long hill for a while, then it flattens out for a short while passing a sign pointing back to 'Heathcote', before continuing up another long rocky hill to the top of the ridge. From the top of the hill, the track continues through the trees which quickly open out into scrub. The walk follows the yellow painted markers across all the rock surfaces, until it gradually starts to descend down the end of the ridge, steadily winding down until coming to a large flat clearing. Here, the walk turns right and crosses the Uloola Brook, then continues along the bush track heading away from the brook for a short while, passing the sign with arrows to 'Waterfall' and 'Heathcote' before coming to the 'Uloola Falls Bush Campground'.

(5.04 km) Uloola Falls Camp to Int of Uloola Track and Robertson Roundabout

At the top of the ridge, the track flattens out and continues through the scrub, frequently crossing scattered rock surfaces with occasional painted markers. The track continues in this manner for a long while, until reaching an intersection with a bush track on the right, and a sign pointing back to 'Uloola Falls'.
Continue straight: From the intersection, this walk follows the 'Audley' arrow along the bush track. The walk winds among the banksia and gum trees as it follows the defined rocky bush track along the ridge for a long while, before coming to the intersection, with multiple signposts including 'Audley' and 'Robertsons Roundabout'.

The track provides views of the river (down to the right) as it heads up to the intersection, and a sign pointing back towards 'Audley'[2].
Veer right: From the intersection the track follows the Kangaroo Creek and Heathcote arrows along the bushtrack heading up the short rocky hill and along the side of the ridge, providing great views over the valley as it continues along for a while until coming to the top of a large metal staircase which it follows down to the bottom of the valley, coming to Kangaroo Creek.

Kangaroo Creek Pools Alt = 9 m
Kangaroo Creek Pools are found on the junction of Engadine Creek and Kangaroo Creek in the Royal National park. This is where Kangaroo creek begins to widen before it joins the Hacking River.

From the intersection at the south end of Karloo Pools the track track heads south-east along the bushtrack.

It is worth noting that you have to cross the watercourse to find the trail on the other side. I spent 2 hours wandering in the bush South of the pools only to find that I was on the wrong side of the creek.

Thanks Peter

Sorry for the confusion. 2 hrs wandering would be very frustrating. Thanks for letting us know.

I have looked at our photos and made a quick update. We are starting a full review of the walks in the Royal this week. So this is great timing.

I hope you enjoyed the walk other than this.

thanks again for your time to help make these notes better

After Kangaroo Creek there are no signs for engadine, even though the signs appear to have been replaced recently. The one track at the intersection at the 12.4km mark that we thought might go to engadine took us back to heathcote. We noted a lot of bush regeneration and thought that perhaps the track had been shut.
Damian Brown - Engadine Path IP:202.171.188.xxx | 2010-01-04 06:08:59
I had the same problem, I got to the Robertson Roundabout coming from Heathcote, but couldnt find any track to Engadine - went around in circles, then eventually made my way back to Heathcote. I couldnt make sense of the directions after the entry at 9.57km, the directions dont match 'location to location' like the rest do, and didnt seem to match the signs - could be me, but Id be careful.

Hi guy-francis and Damian
Thanks for the feedback it is very valuable. I must humbly apologise for your detours. We have recently 'cleaned up' our notes to fix spelling errors, and it looks like part of these notes where put back in 'backwards' (ie instead of saying how to get away from Kangaroo creek, they where telling you how to get there. I have gone though our logs and the problem seems to only impacted these notes. And I have now fixed it up.
Thanks Again
Matt :)
Paul - Engadine IP:152.76.1.xxx | 2010-02-15 00:14:11
It is confusing - but follow the sign - 1 only i think - to Kangaroo Ck and keep following the signs to Heathcote before (finally) finding signs to Engadine. I didn't see this walk on your website until after i had completed it. I was surprised how long it took, but i was quicker than your estimation. My biggest difficulty was over the rocky ridges going towards Audley where the arrows and the track were hard to find.

Hi Serina
Thanks for the feedback. Sorry you had trouble, it sounds like you got close. Looks like we need to add this to our walks that need re-walking and updating. This link shows the a few of the signs that where then when we wrote these notes
http://www.wildwalks.com/i.html?image_id=31783
Sounds like you turned left onto one of the trail leading into Engadine (instead of continuing straight) as we intended.
If you can work out where things when wrong for you, please send me the details and I can add a note for future walkers.
Thanks
Matt :)

Great walk.

Unfortunately there was a lot of rubbish at Karloo Pools - if you are walking the opposite way to the directions (i.e. Engadine to Heathcote) you could carry a rubbish bag and walk some of the rubbish out quite easily.

We found the path leading away from Kangaroo Creek quite easily. Cross the river at the end nearest to the metal staircase, then continue down the creek for about 10 metres, the path is on the left with a sign and a small Lions club post.

If you are planning on using the toilet at the campground, some hand sanitizer might be a good idea :-)

On an unrelated note, the plant you have labelled as Lambertia formosa (Mountain Devil) is actually a waratah (Telopea speciosissima)

Jules IP:61.95.125.xxx | 2012-03-17 03:30:04
Just walked this after heavy rains in Sydney which turned the track into a creek!
Must note that many sections are heavily overgrown, had to double back a couple times on Ridge Track as painted markers are faded (and positioned to be seen when traveling southwards). Was lucky to find trail south of Karloo Ponds on the first go.

Took about 5 hours including Audley if you set a brisk pace.
Walk uphill from Audley to Engadine a killer! ^_^
Sir Walksalot - shrub IP:122.108.152.xxx | 2012-04-15 11:20:48
As per Jules post above, the track is getting pretty overgrown, makes it slighty uncomfortable having shrub/branches brush against you for a good part of the walk.
Deviated slightly by not walking all the way down to Audley, and towards the end of the track by going back to Heathcote station instead of Engadine to get to my car. Fairly fast pace walking doing this was 3.5 hours.
Might be nicer with long sleeves/pants!
Chili Brown - Nice Walk, First Hike. IP:124.149.161.xxx | 2013-12-25 20:43:22
Looking at the directions I was a bit worried that I would get confused but didn't have any major problems finding the way.
Only issue was at Kangaroo Creek, which seems where other people have had trouble too. Not too hard to find, when you come off the stairs keep going straight there wasn't really a clear track but Heathcote sign is pretty much opposite the stairs.
As per what others have said most of the arrows are faded but the track, although overgrown in some places is still easy to follow, long sleeves/pants a good idea.
Very enjoyable.
Tejas - Really nice walk IP:110.20.186.xxx | 2014-08-05 12:24:28
This was a really nice walk as the title suggests with the sense of civilisation still there with the planes and car noise around Audley.

That said really worthwhile. Nice views at the start on the rocks, you can see the city skyline. As above it is overgrown, mostly the section from Uloola Falls camp to Audley. Take it slow, don't rush as it is uneven in parts and you could easily lose your footing when concentrating on keeping those branches from swiping your face.

Kangaroo Creek is a really nice area. Perfect place to rest before heading up the final climb up the ridge.
