Bathers Way Coastal Walk
Explore the spectacular beaches that make up Newcastle’s stunning coastline on the Bathers Way Coastal Walk. The scenic 5KM stroll begins at the Ocean Baths at award-winning Merewether Beach, and stretches across Dixon Park, Bar Beach, and Newcastle Beach, ending at popular Nobbys Beach. Bathers Way forms part of the Great North Walk from Merewether to Sydney.
Take in sweeping views of the coastline from viewing platforms located at various points, and look out for dolphins and migrating humpback whales. Learn about Newcastle’s heritage from yellow information signs along the walk. You can exit the walkway at any of the beaches if you want to cool off with a refreshing swim or make use of the seating provided if you need to rest. Barbeques, picnic areas, and waterside cafes provide plenty of options if you get hungry along the way.
Bathers Way also connects to the popular Newcastle Memorial Walk.
