Maitland Bay track is one of the central coast's most stunning bushwalks. This pristine walk takes you downhill down hill to the secluded Maitland Bay, past the Bullimah Spur track junction, rock landings, gullies, Hawkesbury sandstone and Bouddi Grand Deep rainforest.

We will stop for a refreshments and a cuppa tea (some Anzac biscuit delights) and a swim if you wish. If it’s low tide, we will head to the bay’s eastern end to see remains of the PS Maitland, tragically wrecked in 1898.

This is what Simone from our previous hike had to say:

“Stunning! A short walk that was so relaxing down at the bay. We stopped for a swim at the beach and took off our shoes to stroll. The water was pristine! Could have stayed here for hours! Loved the morning tea and the ladies. I’m inspired now to walk the whole coastal track in Bouddi National Park”.
