The Baker’s Cottage Heritage Track is a quick and interesting walk. The track itself is mainly drivable road, and turns to bush track before going up the hill to the cottage itself. At 140 years of age, Baker’s Cottage is the oldest unmodified structure, still standing, in the Ku-ring-gai area. All entrances to the cottage are blocked, so you can’t see inside. It is worth looking around the ground to see some other historic remains.

STEP Track

And Walk






1 Hr

2.7 km Circuit

Moderate track

One of the most enjoyable walks in the Lane Cove valley, this relatively short trail ventures down into the valley and explores a variety of bushland. Spend a short while and go out to the scenic lookout and take your time around the waterfall. The track is pretty well signposted with a few information signs explaining some features. This walk was established by STEP a community based environmental organisation, based in South Turramurra.
