Sydney Train Walks

From Tuggerah via Lake Tuggerah 11h / 45km to Wyong

About this walk

Part of this walk covers Wyrrabalong National Park.

It takes about 11 hours to complete the full 45 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.
