Address
Scotts Point Way, Kooragang, New South Wales, Australiab
Opening Hours
Information not available
Take a step back in history as well as a walk through nature. At the beginning of the Scotts Point to Riverside Park trail, you’ll find a visitor information shelter that shows some reproductions of 1860s botanical drawings by the Scott sisters, the daughters of one of the island’s first European settlers. The trail follows the north arm of the Hunter River. It’s an easy walk or you can jump on a bike. There are two rest spots with picnic tables – one at Scotts Point and the other at your final destination, Riverside Park. Once you’re there, you might want to get out your fishing line. There’s a jetty here – the only deepwater one between Newcastle and Raymond Terrace – that’s popular for recreational fishing. If you’re an early riser, dawn around here is spectacular. The water is so still, it’s like a mirror, and the birds are actively fishing and foraging on the river foreshore. **To keep visitors safe ALL camping in NSW national parks now requires a booking. For day visitors, please plan ahead and visit outside of peak periods (11am and 2pm). Check park alerts and visit COVID-19 updates for more information before visiting any park – www.nationalparks.nsw.gov.au **
