Public walking trails and maps
In June 2004 the local community, in association with Hunter’s Hill Council, developed a series of 16 interlinked walks which highlight the area’s history and heritage. In June 2009 the ‘Walks in Hunters Hill’ Map was updated and reprinted.
Download the maps here or hardcopies of the maps are available from the Council offices at 22 Alexandra Street, Hunter’s Hill and from the Gladesville Library at 6 Pittwater Road, Gladesville.
