Treachery Headland walking track offers impressive views of Sugarloaf Point Lighthouse, the rocky headland and the coastline. It's a short walk, taking you on a journey through the park's coastal rainforest. You'll pass a giant fig tree with intricate buttress roots before reaching the grassy headland where stunning views await.
A sidetrack off the main one will take you down to the white sands of the secluded Treachery Beach. It's a great spot for fishing and surfing.
About the region
Myall Lakes National Park, on the north coast not far from Newcastle, features one of the State’s largest coastal lake systems that offers countless opportunities for canoeing and kayaking, boating and fishing. The park also boasts more than 40kms of beaches that offer some good swimming and surfing spots. You can visit for a daytrip to enjoy a barbecue or picnic and some walking, but it’s better to come for the weekend or longer to enjoy all that the park has to offer. There are lots of great campgrounds, some large and some small, including campsites for tents, trailers, caravans, motorhomes, and even boats, so you’re bound to find the perfect site to suit your needs. If camping is not your style, you can book in to the heritage listed accommodation at Sugarloaf Point Lighthouse.
