Sheldon Forest Walk, Turramurra

Visitors will go on a gentle guided walk through Sheldon Forest and hear from a geological point of view why this Sydney forest is so environmentally sensitive and such a ‘national treasure’.

Angus M. Robinson, both a member of Friends of Ku-ring-gai Environment (FOKE) and the National Trust (NSW), is one of Australia’s leading geotourism proponents.
Angus will share his geological insights into one of Ku-ring-gai’s rarest urban forests – Sheldon Forest.

This magnificent Blue Gum High Forest community is one of the best examples of Ashfield Shale that explains why this forest is of such high conservation value as it transitions from Blue Gum High Forest to Sydney Turpentine Ironbark Forest.

This walk will traverse only the upper part of the track where access is easy.
