Great North Walk

This event has now passed

Great North Walk
The Great North Walk is a walking track which runs from Sydney to Newcastle in New South Wales. The main track, 250 kilometres in length, runs between the Obelisk in Macquarie Place in Sydney to Queens Wharf Tower in Bicentennial Park in Newcastle and is well sign-posted. There are many "side tracks" which link the track to populated areas along the length of the walk. The walk includes a huge variety of wildlife and scenery.

Accommodation is in high quality cabins, with plenty of options for singles or couples.

Approximate cost of the walk will be $1,600.
This includes accommodation and charter bus but excludes meals and travel to or from Sydney.
