The Facts

  • Start or End: I started at the Frederick Street bus stop at Charlestown Square (Google Map Directions) and finished at Queens Wharf, Newcastle (Google Map Directions). From Queens Wharf there are tram and bus options.
  • Length: 13.1km (8.2mi) in about 3.5hr
  • Grade: Medium. The track is well worn and rather easy to follow. There are a few hills to overcome in Glenrock State Conservation Area and at the aptly named, The Hill. I did need to jump over a stream in the bushland near Charlestown and certain sections could get muddy with rain. Be careful of conditions on the rocks along Burswood Beach. From Merewether into Newcastle, the trail is a nice wide concrete path, except for King Edward Park where you need to walk along a road.
  • Date Walked: 23rd of July 2019
