Yuelarbah Trail & Coffee

This is a pleasant return walk along the Yuelarbah trail, which forms part of The Great North Walk between Sydney and Newcastle. We will walk along sections of boardwalk, trail, beach and rock-platforms to keep things interesting. Arriving at Merewether Surf Club, we will take a short rest to enjoy a barista-made coffee or hot drink, while watching the surf. The return walk will take us back to our starting point. A great way to see the outdoors! We recommend moderate fitness for this 9km circuit. 

 

Mt. Warrawolong Circuit

This fantastic walk features a section of The Great North Walk, which links Sydney and Newcastle. The track is a mixture of trail and 4WD tracks out under the tall trees of the Watagans forest. When we reach the top of Mt. Warrawolong (642m), hikers have the option of climbing the fire tower for an incredible 360° view that extends from the Barrington Tops right to the Northern suburbs of Sydney. We return along a different route with a short, steep section of track that rewards us with a fantastic view to the north of our progress for the day. We recommend moderate fitness for this 8.3km walk.  

This circuit walk requires a 30min drive from meeting location along State Forest roads. 

 

Gap Creek & Watagans National Park Bushwalk

This circuit walk starts with bang – an uphill section of road that is sure to get the blood pumping as we begin our ascent through the forest. Following walking trails for the day, we’ll descend into the rainforest and follow a trail to a rockpool. It is here at the base of Gap Creek Falls that we’ll enjoy a rest with some morning tea! Climbing back up the track after a refreshment, we’ll reach Bangalow Rd to follow along until we return to our starting location. Come along for the adventure in the great space of the Watagans forest. We recommend moderate fitness for this 9.5km circuit.
