Our event will combine the Coast's love of arts and crafts, fashion, manufacturers & producers, designers, artisans of gourmet food, wine and much more!

Mountain Bike Riding
Bouddi Ridge explorer is the longest mountain biking trail in Bouddi National Park. The trail is a 10km loop, combining several other park trails – Strom loop, Rocky Point trail, Daleys Point trail and MacMasters Ridge trail.
Bouddi Ridge explorer offers real variety for mountain bikers. Strom loop and Rocky Point trail sections are easy going, while the undulating Daleys Point trail needs more effort and MacMasters Ridge trail is steep in parts, requiring greater fitness.
Park your car at Maitland Bay Information Centre and start riding Strom loop, following park signage. Return along Strom trail, or make a loop via The Scenic Road and Turkey trail. Stop and enjoy the view from Allen Strom lookout at the end of Rocky Point trail.
Bouddi Coastal Walk
The 8km Bouddi coastal walk runs from Putty Beach to MacMasters Beach. Boasting beaches, boardwalks and birdlife, it’s known as one of the most beautiful central coast walks. This relatively easy hike is characterised by sweeping views, shady rainforest and inviting picnic spots.
There’s a photo opportunity around every corner on Bouddi coastal walk. You might see wildflowers or migrating whales from Gerrin Point lookout, along with the Bouddi National Park Marine Extension and the PS Maitland shipwreck at the eastern end of Maitland Bay. Stay overnight before you set off at Putty Beach campground or stop along the way at Little Beach campground.
Prefer a shorter walk? Break the walk into shorter sections:
Putty Beach to Maitland Bay (3km) Maitland Bay to Little Beach (3.5km)Little Beach to MacMasters Beach (1.7km)
