TAKE A WALK On the Wild Side

August 31, 2017

 

More than 4.3 million domestic and international overnight visitors last year choose to hike in NSW as part of a holiday experience, up 5.2 per cent on the previous year*.

 

Destination NSW Chief Executive Officer Sandra Chipchase said, “NSW is the perfect place for a hiking holiday. The state is home to some of Australia’s most popular walking trails, as well as many hidden gems including superb multi-day hikes and fantastic short and long day hikes along stunning coastal and inland trails.”

 

Here are some of NSW’s great walks for when you want to stay close to home, but feel like a million miles away:

  • Pack your bags for a challenging two-day hike in the Hawkesbury along the beautiful Colo River. The Mountain Lagoon Loop via Colo Meroo and Tootie Creek is a challenging river walk along the lower reaches of the Colo River. The Hawkesbury hiking guide has details of 12 bush walks in the area – visit www.discoverthehawkesbury.com.au

  • Explore the trails of the World Heritage-listed rainforests of the Barrington Tops National Park. With more than 18 walking trails, from two-hour hikes through sub-alpine forests and wetlands, to the challenging 38km Gloucester Tops to Careys Peak trail that offers scenic views from the tops.
