Sydney Train Walks

From Tuggerah via Lake Tuggerah 4h / 15km to The Entrance

About this walk

Part of this walk covers Wyrrabalong National Park.

It takes about 4 hours to complete the full 15 kilometre walk, with plenty of breaks and photography stops. A brisk walker can do this much faster, but consider that there's a lot to see along the way.
