Rules are—if you live in NSW, you live for a weekend hike.
And good news, the state government is just about ready to dump some cold hard cash towards a series of multi-day walks in NSW so start getting excited for those Saturdays and Sundays rich with good old-fashioned Mother Nature.
The first of these has been called the Great Southern Walk. This guy is set to cover off a 59-kilometre stretch (or five days-worth) of coastline, starting from Kamay Botany Bay National Park and pinning all the way down past the Royal National Park, Otford, and Madden plains before ending at Bulli Tops’ Southern Gateway Centre.
The multi-day walk will essentially connect a number of existing pathways (much like Sydney’s mega 80km Bondi to Manly walk), with the planned $80 million of funding also going into new glamping and cabin accommodation at the end of each major section of the Great Southern Walk.
Another multi-day walk is planned to be announced for NSW this year, with the Great Southern Walk anticipated to be finished by 2024.
