New guided coastal hikes reveal Lake Mac’s spectacular wilderness

The natural beauty and cultural significance of Lake Macquarie’s dramatic coastline will be revealed in a new tourism offering launching during the peak summer school holiday season.


From Saturday 9 January, locally based tourism operator CoastXP will add an 8.5km guided coastal hike through Wallarah National Park to its itinerary, taking in Caves Beach and the rugged coastal wilderness to the south.

The hike will focus on the area’s Aboriginal heritage, native flora and fauna, geology, and history since European settlement.

Lake Macquarie Mayor Cr Kay Fraser said the guided walks added to the City’s growing number of outdoor attractions.
