A network of 13 magnificent Great Walks is being established in NSW national parks as part of a plan to transform our State into a bushwalking mecca, ready to rival other multi-day walks in Australia and beyond.
The NSW Great Walks Strategy will help deliver durable walking tracks, protect environmentally sensitive areas, withstand severe weather, and provide infrastructure to meet future population growth.
There are currently 13 Great Walks established or in development across NSW. These walks constitute 632 km. There are 2,950 km of walking tracks in NSW national parks.
North Coast walks highlighted in the strategy include:
Dorrigo Escarpment Great Walk - Dorrigo National Park - 46 km (4 days/3 nights) In development
Tweed Byron Hinterland Walk - Mt Jerusalem and Nightcap National Parks - 36 km (4 days/3 nights) In development
Gibraltar-Washpool World Heritage Walk - Gibraltar Range and Washpool National Parks - 45 km (4 days/3 nights)
Yuraygir Coastal Walk - Yuragir National Park - 65 km (5 days/4 nights)
