Marramarra National Park is one of the less well known national parks in the Sydney region. This walk is a good introduction, with an easy walk to a pleasant lookout over Berowra Creek and Joe Crafts Bay.

The walk is quite straightforward. Continue along the main fire trail passing minor fire trails to the north and south after about 2 km, and some more minor trails to the south after about 3.5km. At about 4 km you will reach a major junction. The left fork heads towards Coba Point. Take the right fork. Less than a kilometre further on you reach the lookout above Collingridge Point. To return, simply retrace your steps.
If you have time it may be worth exploring some of the other fire trails off to the north and south of the main trail. The one to the north after about 2km has some good views.
