Freshwater track is a 2km, grade 4 Return hike located in the Yuraygir National Park, NSW. The hike should take approximately 45mins to complete.

Summary

Discover one of the Clarence Coast’s best-kept secrets on the Freshwater track. Starting at the northern end of Pebbly Beach campground, this short track leads you to a beautiful and remote beach.
Positioned on the park’s southern coastline, the Freshwater track forms part of the Yuraygir coastal walk’s Wooli to Red Rock section.
You’ll wander through coastal heathland and pass craggy rocks before arriving at the exquisitely isolated Freshwater Beach. Have you ever seen a wilder, more magnificent beach in your life? Walk along the beach and dip your toes in along the way, it’s also a good spot for a picnic lunch. Stay as long as you like before heading back to the track for the return walk. Remember to take your binoculars if you want to whale watch.
