Walk | A bushwalk of any kind short or longSlow pace | A trip where the leader will set an easy pace.(Fully Booked) Leader Frank Hufschmid (walk coordinator Mike McLeod) Brokers Nose is an easy & lovely walk.  Starting at the truck stop (noting there is very limited parking) you enter the Illawarra Escarpment State Conservation Area through a service with various tracks leading basically North following the cliff line, taking in wet and dry Sclerophyll forests with plenty of pretty vistas and changing flora. There are some minor rock hopping sections that you can take at your own pace, and mostly just serve as stairs to higher ground. Depending on the recent rainfall there are also creeks that are very pretty (Source:  Bushwalk the Gong). Hazards: Unfenced cliffs. Sandstone rock can fracture and crumble without warning.
