Neranie Headland walking track is a 1.4km, grade 3 Return hike located in the Myall Lakes National Park, NSW. The hike should take approximately 45mins to complete.

Summary

Neranie Headland walking track, near the eastern edge of Myall Lakes National Park, has breathtaking views over tree-lined waterways and wetlands teeming with wildlife. Starting in a clearing that was once a part of the historic Neranie timber mill village, the track leads past an old cemetery where you’ll find gravestones dating back to the nineteenth century.
Ascending the track to Neranie Headland, stop for a breather and take in the beauty of Myall Lakes fringed with swamp oak and paperbark. Birds flock to the wetlands and if you time your visit well, the chorus of the feisty friar birds and rainbow lorikeets will be almost deafening. Passing through a stand of towering black butt near the end of the track, finish off your adventure at nearby Hearts Point picnic area.
