Hiking the spectacular Tomaree Coastal Walk

Salty breezes, aqua-coloured water, twisted gums, big skies, rugged headlands. Walking the Tomaree Coastal Walk on Worimi Country will awaken your senses, blow away the cobwebs and make you fall head-over-hiking-boots for this magical corner of NSW. Winding through ancient volcanic landscapes, beneath shaded canopies of gum and she-oaks, around sheltered rocky coves, and along soft white sand. This epic 27km walk begins at the foot of Tomaree Mountain, a few minutes' drive from the popular coastal town of Shoal Bay, and just 2.5hr drive from Sydney.
