The Trail

Yeularbah Walking Trail forms part of the Great North Walk between Newcastle and Sydney (250 km). Commencing at  Yuelarbah Trail car park, Burwood Road, Whitebridge, the path meanders towards the coast and Glenrock Beach. Located in Glenrock State Conversation Area, the trail criss-crosses a number of other hiking/mountain biking trails in the area and is one of the more popular trails in the Newcastle region.

Halfway through the walk you will come across Leichardts Lookout which provides a fantastic view across the Glenrock Lagoon towards the ocean. For those who would like a longer hike, there is plenty of opportunity to extend by linking up with one of the many other trails.

The first section of the trail is suitable for wheelchairs.
