Bushwalking is a wonderful activity to do with the family, to get outdoors, be active and appreciate nature.

The Central Coast has many beautiful spots for some scenic and family friendly bush walks. Here's a few you might like to check out:

The Coast Walking Track

1. The Coast Walking Track, Bateau Bay
Location: Wyrrabalong National Park
Distance: 3km one way, 6km return

A beautiful and family friendly walk, taking you through the forest and along the coast with some stunning views between Forresters Beach and Bateau Bay Beach. A great time to make this walk is during the winter months as you're more than likely to see whales from the Crackneck lookout along the way.

2. Patonga to Pearl Beach Walking Track
Location: Brisbane Water National Park
Distance: 3km one way, 6km return

Walk alongside some magnificent red gums and eucalyptus trees on this walk, as well as being treated to some incredible views at Warrah lookout. The walk starts and ends at a beach so make sure you pack swimmers if the weather is warm.

Maitland Bay Track

3. Box Head Track
Location: Bouddhi National Park
Distance: 3.1km return

This easy walk offers you plenty of bird and wildlife watching opportunities, as well as some stunning panoramic views out over the ocean and Hawkesbury river. Be sure to bring your camera!

4. Girrakool Loop Track
Location: Brisbane Water National Park
Distance: 2km loop

A short, pleasant and easy walk through the bushlands, offering pretty waterfalls to find and an Aboriginal rock engraving site to visit. Finish the walk back where you started at the picnic site, so why not bring along a picnic to enjoy.

5. Moonee Beach Trail
Location: Munmorah State Conservation Area
Distance: 4km return

Walk along wide paths offering beautiful views out over the ocean and find yourself at Moonee Beach, so remember to bring your swimmers. As well as the stunning scenery, there's plenty of wildlife and fauna to spot too.

Maitland Bay Track

6. Kanning Cave Walk
Location: Kincumba Mountain
Distance: 922m return

This short and easy walk is perfect if you've got young children (or older family members) who can't walk as far. Children will love the caves along the way, particularly the main larger one. It'll be like a real life "Going On A Bear Hunt" adventure!

7. Maitland Bay Track

Location: Bouddi National Park
Distance: 2km return

A short and steep track, which does include some steps, takes you downhill to the beautiful and secluded Maitland Bay. Pack some swimmers and a picnic for the beach and then head back up the hill to return.

Please note, most bush walking tracks are unsuitable for prams so consider this before heading out for a walk. A more practical alternative to a pram for bush walking could be baby wearing or a toddler backpack.
