Stretching from the commanding lighthouse at Nobbys Headland to the coastal wilderness of Glenrock Reserve and the early coal workings at Burwood Beach, Newcastle's Bathers Way is a scenic five kilometre coastal walk waiting for you to discover, play, swim and eat any way you choose.
Take two hours to walk the path or a month of Sundays to experience it all.
Engaging tales of Newcastle's indigenous and convict heritage, culture and natural history weave their way along the track. Look for the yellow information signs that are the storytellers, helping you navigate the Bathers Way.
Sizzling barbecues set the scene for the perfect picnic lunch, enjoyed in one of the tree lined parks along the way.
For a gourmet delight, venture off the track and to nearby Darby Street, The Junction or the City Centre to sip on coffee and soak up the cafe culture till late.
