Bronze - Hike DHURAG

THE PROGRAM VENUE – DHURAG

Dharug National Park covers rugged bush land just north of the Hawkesbury River, with dramatic sandstone cliffs and a variety of natural habitats. The park is bursting with bird and animal life, you’re likely to see gang-gang cockatoos, satin bowerbirds and green catbirds on the mountain slopes and, for students camping overnight, be sure to take a torch to look for yellow-bellied and greater gliders and sugar gliders. If you can’t see the yellow-bellied glider, you may well hear their loud shrieking and gurgling calls.
