Absolutely stunning coastal trail, perfect for runners, walkers or mountain bikers seeking rolling green hills that drop dramatically into the ocean via spectacular cliff tops. If you start at the Gerringong end, you may need to take your shoes off or get the shoes a bit wet crossing the shallow water at the entrance to the Werri Beach lagoon, but once on the trail itself, it’s all smooth, compacted grass underfoot. Expect to see grazing cattle, impressive architect-designed rural estates, the occasional train emerging from or sneaking into the hillside tunnels, plenty of oversized skink lizards, and what look to be a few nice surf breaks with not a soul on them.

Majority of the southern part of the track isn’t paved but mowed grass pathways or dirt tracks made from people walking. It is well signed and paved from Kiama onwards (northern section). Great views, variety of scenery and elevations.

Nice place to run, walk, ride anything really. unfortunately the constant presence of cars ruins the experience.

An amazing walk across arguably the best beaches in Sydney. The views of the unique coastline all the way up to the central coast can be seen. Plenty of opportunities to have a swim in the ocean throughout this walk.

Difficulty : Easy - Moderate, If you are not walking on a paved pathway, you will be on sand which makes it a touch more difficult, a few decent headlands to cross but nothing to bad.

Perfect for a level 1hr walk or a work out with Harbour views all the way.

Just did part of it today. Trail running is good. Youll get some pavement. First tip! Ask for directions or download the trail and follow. Second tip. When at the first sandy beach you can run all the way towards the end near the rock cliffs. You want to find a trail that to the right going up to the houses. The one i found had a blue rope you could use to assist you up. Once on top you will be on a flat surface between the cliffs and houses for beautiful views. I turned around after about 3 miles 5k due to high winds and i forgot a light jacket or wind breaker. Awesome views! Will finish next time.

A great walk along the cliff tops. You are very exposed though and the weather can change rapidly.. fantastic views!

nice relaxed walk paved all the way. It's not 14k though it's 18k e2e.

Great walk along Newcastle’s most iconic beaches. All footpaths and always close to toilets, water or cafes. Great in sections with kids and family.

Easy ride on dedicated cycle paths

Glad I found this trail - perfect for young kids (starting at Belmont, there is a long, but gradual uphill section - but coming back is easy). Cafe near the end, and a few beaches are in relatively easy reach of the track. We had a swim at Nine Mile Beach on the way back. Rail tunnel is lots of fun!

Beautiful trail with breathtaking views

Very popular route for walkers, runners and cyclists, with well maintained concrete footpaths. Not an urban oasis per se - you would never forget you are in the city - but a nice respite from the hustle and a great little coffee place at one point in the walk.

I loved this walk. I enjoyed the variation in terrain and the scenery was amazing. A good family hike. Plenty of good places to stop for something to eat along the way.
