Back Creek to Macleay River Breakwall Walk

Back Creek to Macleay River Breakwall Walk

Distance: 4.5 kilometres
Difficulty: Easy

A pleasant bush and beach walk close to the township. The track is not clearly marked but you can’t get lost with the beach on one side and the mangroves and road on the other side.

Park in the car park at Back Creek in South West Rocks.

Start at the footbridge, but always go on the bush track from the footbridge to the breakwall. This way, the track is easier to find than in the other direction.

When you reach the breakwall, turn right and return to the footbridge by walking along the beach.

*note, this walk can be reversed. Walk along the breakwall towards the ocean. You can go as far as the point and clamber down the rock wall. For easier access, walk down to the sand about 300 metresbefore the point, parallel to the wall to the beach.
