This warm spring weather has inspired me to re-visit one of my favourite spots on the central coast. The beautiful and tranquil Bouddi National Park walk down to Maitland Bay.
This relaxing bush walk down to the beach takes about 15 minutes, but you wont even notice the time as you admire the wildlife around you, if you look closely you will see monitor lizards camouflaged on the trees.
You are surrounded by the constant happy chirping of many different types of birds. The flowers and trees are so diverse you will be amazed - taking your camera is a must. Once you reach the beach, you will feel like you are on an private island, there is rarely anyone else around and the clear blue waters laps the sand softly tempting you to take a dip.
A word of warning though, if you take a picnic done there, be sure to keep all your food hidden away in a bag, I guarantee the crows will take it otherwise, this has happened to me many a times.
Once you have had enough of the tranquil surroundings its time to battle back up to the car park. On a clear day you can see Sydney from this look out.
Please be respectful and take all rubbish with you, I would hate to see this beautiful treasure destroyed.
