Lillypilly loop trail is a 3.5km, grade 3 Circuit hike located in the Wyrrabalong National Park, NSW. The hike should take approximately 1.5hrs to complete.

Summary

The splendid Lillypilly loop trail allows you to experience the Central Coast’s largest remaining stand of coastal or ‘littoral’ rainforest – you won’t help but be impressed.
Gaze at the canopy of towering corkwoods, cabbage tree palms and tuckeroos, and be treated to views over important wetlands bordering Tuggerah Lakes along this easy walk. Check out the burrawangs and lush, vine-covered vegetation as you advance along the sandy track. And watch for birds and butterflies – you might even spot a white bellied sea eagle nest.
Countless photo opportunities await you along this picturesque track, so it’s a good idea to keep your camera handy. Join up with Red gum trail for a longer walk and be sure to drive up the road to Pelican Beach Road lookout when you’re finished to cool off with a swim.
