If you are visiting just for the day or short for time, try a smaller section of the Tomaree Coastal Walk.
Choose your own adventure - a flexible walk with multiple entry points along the route. Secondary experience options include:
- Tomaree Head summit (2 hours)
- Shoal Bay to Fingal Bay (half day)
- Birubi Point to One Mile Beach (half day)
Worlds away by day, but close enough to return to your accommodation and enjoy a glass of wine at one of the many restaurants in the Port Stephens area.
Longer Walk Option:
Experience breathtaking views, secluded beaches, and coastal townships in an area rich in cultural heritage and marine life on a series of walks ranging from two hours to two or three days. The new 27km Tomaree Coastal Walk passes across stunning headlands, volcanic landscapes, coastal forests and secluded beaches before arriving at the southern hemisphere’s largest mobile sand dunes at Worimi Conservation Lands.
The Tomaree Coastal Walk is best experienced as an overnight walk staying at nearby off-park accommodation. It can be completed in two days, or in three days for a more leisurely pace.
With its expansive ocean views, the Tomaree Coastal Walk is a great place for whalewatching during the annual migration (May – Nov). Make sure to bring your binoculars! The area is also home to dolphins, koalas and over 200 bird species.
The walk retraces ancient routes used by the Worimi People, passing through a culturally significant landscape.
This walk is the perfect introduction to multi-day walking experiences, with the opportunity to immerse yourself in nature by day and experience the wide range of accommodation and dining options of the Port Stephens region by night.
Tomaree Coastal Walk is in the Port Stephens region—only a 2 ½ hours’ drive from Sydney.
