Lockdown 2.0 is here and while we grapple with how we got here once again, let’s take solace in the fact that we are still permitted to exercise outdoors, and that we live in one of the most stunning areas in Australia in which to enjoy ourselves outside. BeyondTracks was started by Andrew Harvey and Anna Wu in November 2012 with the goal of helping people find and enjoy walks around Sydney without needing a guide to take you. Here we reproduce some of their top Ku-ring-gai picks – we hope you get out and try some of them!
