Somersby Falls, Gosford

Just over an hour’s drive north from Sydney, you’ll reach Somersby Falls, a perfect spot to enjoy a picnic lunch amidst the lush rainforest. Hike the 500m Somersby Falls walking track to take in the views of the top and bottom waterfalls. Make sure you have some good walking shoes on, as the walk can be steep and slippery in places.

3. Bouddi Coastal Walk

Bouddi National Park | 8km one way via boardwalk and bushwalk

The Bouddi Coastal Walk is famously known for its beaches, boardwalk and birdlife. It's one of the most beautiful (and popular) walks on the Central Coast but the route is not for the faint-hearted... all worth it though when you reach breathtaking breaks at its series of coastal lookouts across the Pacific Ocean. Start from either MacMasters Beach near the Surf Club, or from Putty Beach at Killcare. You will experience sweeping ocean views, cliff-side boardwalks, cool and shady rainforest, relaxing picnic spots and the opportunity to spot migrating whales from some of the Central Coast's most amazing vantage points. There’s also the option to enjoy a picnic or swim at Maitland Bay along the trail.

4. Ridge to Rainforest Track

Strickland State Forest | 4.2km loop

The Strickland State Forest is just five square kilometres in size and features six walking tracks through the incredibly diverse areas of the forest. The Ridge to Rainforest track begins in dry forest and follows along the ridge to reach the gully rainforest where you will walk through mossy rocks and statuesque trees that run along the creek.
