Diamond Head Loop walk is a 4.3km, grade 3 Circuit hike located in the Crowdy Bay National Park, NSW. The hike should take approximately 1.5hrs to complete.

Summary

Diamond Head loop walk is the ideal introduction to the splendour of Crowdy Bay National Park, near Port Macquarie. Starting at Diamond Head campground, you’ll link up with Headland walking track and Forest walking track for a walk packed with visual delights, which highlights why this park is a national treasure.
Passing through heath and forests of paperbark and swamp mahogany, pause to take in the exceptional views at Kylie’s lookout and scan the waters for dolphins. It’s thought that Diamond Head draws its name from the quartz crystals in the cliffs and you might see them sparkling in the sunlight.
The headland rises dramatically and offers panoramic views across Crowdy Bay, north to Perpendicular Point and south to Crowdy Head. In between are superb sweeps of golden sand, and rising out of the lush forested hinterland, behind you, are the majestic Three Brothers mountains.
