This beautiful short walk through coastal rainforest links Crowdy Gap campground to Crowdy Beach, just north of Taree. Located in the southern area of Crowdy Bay National Park, Crowdy Gap walking track is an ideal nature trail for the kids, with great opportunities for birdwatching and wildlife-spotting.
Passing through rare coastal rainforest of turpentine and scentless rosewood, you might glimpse a regent bowerbird or a swift parrot. Remember to keep looking up in the branches of nearby gums, as you might just be lucky enough to see a koala.
There are sweeping views along the coast, with Diamond Head to the north. Don't forget your swimmers as the clear blue waves will be very enticing on a hot summer's day. While taking the hamper and heading up the beach to Abbey Creek picnic area, don't forget to scan the horizon for signs of dolphins.
