Tips

The Bouddi Coastal Walk is a very popular day-walk. It's one of the best coastal walks around Sydney, traversing a number of beautiful beaches and scenic lookouts between Little Beach to the north and Putty Beach at the south. In summer you can take advantage of some magnificent and uncrowded swimming beaches, while in winter there's a good a chance you'll have some of the beaches to yourself. Allow time to enjoy and explore Maitland Bay and its shipwreck (at the eastern end) and while there are a few different routes you can take, try and include the Bullimah Spur track, which has some of the best views.

Toilets at all campgrounds. No water (except at Putty Beach, which also has a kiosk).

The walk can be extended into a 2-3  day walk by including Box Head (the very western part of the park) and using the three campgrounds (all need to be booked in advance). The biggest camping area is a nice spot on Putty Beach (accessible by car). The camping site at Little Beach has space for six tents and is a better option if you want the feeling of bush camping (it's about 1km walk down to the beach and campsite). There's also a nice campsite at Tallow Beach, which is a 1.2km walk from the nearest car park...
