Would do it again! Its a great little hike to do amongst the eucalyptus trees that end up on the beach and at the Lagoon. A lot of birds and wildlife to be seen and amazing landscapes to be photographied.

A hidden gem in the city, glenrock makes you feel like your in the middle of a national park. Well maintained walking tracks and many trails for bike riders. Start high and make your way down past the creeks and waterfalls to the secluded lagoon...More

I lived in Newcastle for many years before I knew about the beautiful walking trails here. It is a wonderful mix of beautiful bush, waterfalls and beach views. You can go down on to the beach if you want but no lifesaver club or facilities...More
