Leggy Point loop walking track is a 2km, grade 2 circuit hike, located in the Glenrock State Conservation Area, New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 45mins to complete.

Hike Summary

Leggy Point loop walking track weaves through open coastal forest with some jaw-dropping coastal views in Glenrock State Conservation Area. The walking track is ideal for active nature lovers with wildflower displays and opportunities for birdwatching, swimming and surfing.
Emerging at Elvis Rock, gaze along the coastline to Newcastle to the north. Be sure to look for whales during their annual migration. You can head to Glenrock Beach for a swim or surf after passing Awabakal Aboriginal midden, at the mouth of Glenrock Lagoon.
The forest offers a mix of banksia, acacia, spotted gum, iron bark and white mahogany trees. During spring, look for pretty yellow donkey orchids, named for their two large top petals. Large skinks, known as land mullets, are also common in this area of the park.
