Maitland Bay Shipwreck Track is a 3.9km, grade 4 Return hike located in Bouddi National Park New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 1 hrs 30 mins to complete.


From the Maitland Bay Information Centre this walk heads straight down the hill to Maitland Beach and the shipwreck of the S.S. Maitland. On the way down the track passes many rock landings providing great views of Maitland Bay and the bush of the surrounding gullies. Perched on the edge of the rock shelf in the water east of the beach are the remains of the S.S Maitland. The walk down to the shipwreck is magnificent and it is well worth spending some extra time to enjoy the beach.
