NATURE WALKS

There are over 200km of walking and cycling trails located around the Myall Lakes region for varying fitness levels. For more information on the below walk please contact reception.

To wake up or make some room for dinner, spend 15 minutes walking a loop through the resort and back along Bombah Point Road. Towards the end of our lease area you will find some beautiful tall Angophora trees. Along the return you will find an old canal build by Harry Legge and friends. Please stay alert for cars and walk on the right side of the road.

O’Sullivans Gap walking track is a delightful short walk that takes in the lush forests surrounding the peaceful O’Sullivans picnic area. Accessed via the northern most tip of Myall Lakes National Park, north of Bulahdelah just off Pacific Highway, it’s a great spot for a break on a road trip.
The track leads uphill through towering flooded gums that were once highly prized by the earlier timber gatherers of the area. Crossing a small creek, the path winds through regenerated rainforest where tallowwoods mingle with Sydney grey gums. Look for the curious scratchings on the trunks of tall trees, mostly likely caused by resident wildlife such as koalas, possums and goannas. Following several spurs, the medium track leads back down to the palm-fringed creek.

At the end of the resort is a track that travels south west to the Myall River. Along the first 20 minutes of this track are several beautiful areas alongside the lake edge to rest and reinvigorate. We suggest that early in the morning these places are ideal for Tai Chi, Yoga and Meditation.
