Wallarah Pennisula Alt = 13 m
Wallarah Penisula, also referred to as the Swansea Pennisula, is surrounded by water and includes the Wallarah National Park. The Wallarah Pennisula stretches from Lake Macquarie in the west to the ocean in the east, from Swansea and Caves Beach in the north to Catherine Hill Bay and Lake Munmorah in the south. Within the Wallarah National Park, there are plenty of things to do, including walking, fishing, swimming and surfing. The coastal views are spectacular, and this is also a good whale watching spot. The Wallarah National Park co-operates with its park neighbours, including Stockland Wallarah Peninsula Pty Ltd, on a wide range of issues relating to the management of the Wallarah Peninsula through a joint management agreement.

Stuart Chalmers Park Alt = 9 m
Named after a cancer victim[1], Stuart Chalmers Park is a well established park close to Caves Beach. Stuart Chalmers Park has toilets[2], car parking[3], water, sheltered electric barbeques[4] and picnic tables[5]. The park has easy access to Caves Beach, the cafe Acquablu[6] and the Caves Beach SLSC.

Caves Beach SLSC Alt = 8 m
The Swansea-Caves Beach Surf Life Saving Club, south of Newcastle, was founded in 1929. The SLSC looks after Caves Beach, which runs from this southern end of the beach, for 300m to the northern Swansea (Hams) Beach. A road runs the length of the beach, with car parking along much of it. Though Caves Beach faces the south-east, it is afforded a moderate degree of wave protection by reefs in the centre and north and Spoon Rocks to the south-east. More info

This walk continues for about 50m, undulating gently through coastal vegetation and crossing over a timber footbridge[24], until coming to the circular concrete structure[25] of Caves Beach Lookout[26].

Caves Beach Lookout Alt = 6 m
The Cave Beach Lookout, on the southern headland of Caves Beach, is easily accessible via wheelchair from the car park nearby. The lookout offers excellent views[27] over the caves of Caves Beach and also to the north and south. There are is a large stone viewing platform[28] on which to sit and enjoy the views.

Then the walk continues for about 160m, until climbing gently[48] up to the land end of Spoon Rocks Spit[49].

Spoon Rocks Beach Alt = 2 m
Spoon Rocks Beach, south of Caves Beach is a sheltered sandy beach[50]. Spoon Rocks breakwater[51] forms the southern end of the beach and has allowed sedimentation of sand to occur and created this attractive beach[52]. The beach is 300m long, faces north-east and is good for swimming. The Spoon Rocks Beach is worth the walk in to it.

(1.44 km) Int of Coastal Walk & Spoon Rocks Track to End of Spoon Rocks Spit
Optional sidetrip: Track: Hard - undefined
Length = 467 m Time = 8 mins
Climb = 2 m Descent = -8 m
Turn left: From the intersection[53][54], this walk follows the rocky Spoon Rocks Spit out to its end, while moving directly away from the main coastline. This walk continues to follow the rocky spit (initially keeping to the Spoon Rocks Beach side[55][56] of the spit) for about 500m, until coming to the end of Spoon Rocks Spit[57][58]. This track is rocky and exposed to the ocean.
(Retrace your steps back to the main track, then continue straight to continue along this walk.)

Spoon Rocks Spit Alt = 2 m
Spoon Rocks Spit is a wide breakwater[59] extending 500m out into the ocean. This breakwater was originally designed as a coal loading facility to offload coal mined from the nearby Wallarah seam. The rocks were cut from the cliff face below the spit. Over time, the force of the ocean waves have breached the breakwater. Sedimentation from these ocean forces has established a safe and protected swimming and beach[60] area to the north of the spit.

Then this walk continues for about 400m, as the track undulates gently downhill with views and a metal fence[75] on your left, to pass through a timber fenced opening[76]. The walk then continues moderately steeply downhill[77], initially with a timber fence on your right for about 80m to find blank information signs[78] at Split Rocks Headland. The walk continues gently downhill for about 300m, with a short section of timber boardwalk[79] and views of Pinney's Beach[80], until coming to a timber viewing platform and Pinney's Lookout[81].

Pinneys Lookout Alt = 11 m
Pinney's Lookout[82] overlooks the northern side of Pinney's Beach on the Wallarah Peninsula. From this timber platform, the whole of Pinney's Beach can be seen, including Pinney's Headland[83] to the south. Some of the timber on this lookout was missing[84] when visited, so take care.

This walk continues for about 100m through coastal vegetation, until crossing Pinney's Creek via a timber footbridge[93] and coming to a three-way intersection[94], with Pinney's Beach on the left.

Pinneys Beach Alt = 2 m
Pinney's Beach is a good beach for fishing, surfing and swimming. This beach is accessible on foot, via the coastal walk. This beach is not patrolled and rock platforms[95] can be dangerous, even when the seas appear calm. Personal fishing is permitted off all the coast in Wallarah National Park, although a licence is needed. A midden (dated to about 1200 years old), with about 20 stone artefacts, was discovered here in the 1960s, but unfortunately 4WD vehicles have caused erosion to this site. More info

Nice straight forward coastal walk. It was a bit wet after all the rain. Great views of the coast that video cannot do justice to.

Fiona - Great views IP:120.20.194.xxx | 2011-09-18 08:25:11
Enjoyed this walk with wonderful views, fairly easy and did it in 2 hours. A lot of the national park signs are missing and it is a shame thaat they have not been replaced and not much care in the up keep of the walk. However a great walk for a beautiful Spring day and enjoyed a swim at then Caves Beach at the end.
