Fernleigh Track

The Fernleigh Track is one of the region's most popular shared pathways, running along an old railway corridor from Belmont to Adamstown. The track takes a gradual journey from suburbia through beautiful bush and wetland areas with wildlife often present.

The connecting point between the cities of Lake Macquarie and Newcastle is marked with a 180 metre-long former railway tunnel. Many other heritage railway relics are spread along the length of the track, with old sleepers, signage and former stations working to create unique resting points along the way.
