Central Coast, New South Wales Map

Nice walk if you want a quick half day outing.

Not too bad for a spur of the moment decision to hike on an overcast day. The walk includes a 2 km portion of walking on a very busy road which was not great, if you have time try and avoid that. Mostly fire trail with some rocky narrow tracks.

Tuggerah to Shelly Beach

Heaps of mosquitoes and March flies, the locals are rude and not much of a bush walk, very disappointing
Have spotted a few nuisance people hanging around, and my car was vandalised when I got back to it after the walk.

Beautiful day. Great views and a lovely swim at the end.

Beautiful track. Stunning views

Tough walk, 66 flights of stairs, beautiful scenery, could do with a couple of more sign posts. ❤️ the black boys, birds nest fern and suspension bridge.

Not a bad walk, mainly access trails not much off track walking but still good fun

Solid Walk. In under 2 hours with stops .. :)

We really enjoyed this track! Great to see it so well maintained and very little rubbish which is refreshing. Definitely will go back!

Beautiful view from the top of Mount Wondabyne

amazing scenery,very challenging steep sections. Signage could be better

Lovely loop walk, it really is quite steep in places. Super easy to navigate. We did the loop with 7, 5, 3 and 1 year old. I would recommend it for 5 and up. We carried the 1 year old in a pack, and that was ok. The three year old really struggled due to all the repeated hills. So we had to carry him also.

Nice trail! Doesn’t take full 3 hours

Straight forward walk, little bit of an incline in places and can add lockout spots around the loop if you are up to it

Great views, beaches and bush.

Awesome hike, if you ❤️ stairs, superb view from lookout.
So many different paths to explore, we did this in the middle of winter, will bring swimmers for this route in Summer.
Picture perfect,
Wow the boardwalk was incredible.

Beautiful views down side trail

This is one of my favourite walks in Sydney, with great views of the coast and a number of beautiful swimming beaches along the way. It can get fairly busy on weekends, especially at the Putty Beach end.

A nice circuit that goes through eucalpyt forest and some pockets of dry rainforest, with a swimming hole (just off the main track) at the end.

Maitland Bay is one of my favourite hikes, and this circuit combines some of the best views in Bouddi National park with a swim at the beautiful Maitland Bay beach on the way back. Maitland Bay gets busier each year and the Coastal Track is quite popular, but you're unlikely to see anyone on the Bullimah Spur track.
