Mackerel Beach Community is a 1.4km, grade 3 Circuit hike located in Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 45 mins to complete.

Summary

This short walk is a great way to see the beautiful Mackerel Beach and community. After a short ferry ride from Palm Beach the walk heads up the grassed streets of Mackerel leading to the lagoon. The track is mainly sandy beach or grass stretches with the area behind the lagoon winding through a bushland area to bring the track back to Mackerel Beach. This loop is a great short walk and only a hop skip and jump away from Palm Beach.
