Autumn is the perfect time for walking. Let me get one thing straight here too, I’m not exactly talking about donning the activewear and those mini hand weights and going to town, I’m talking about engaging in a light stroll just to loosen up the body and the mind and enjoy some time outdoors. No one likes walking the same route day in day out though right? So here are top 5 walking tracks around Newy that are calling your name!
The Fernleigh Track
Yes, I know this is a bit of a given but it wouldn’t be a top five walking tracks about town list if the walking track didn’t make an appearance. For those who are yet to grace its 15 km pavement, it’s a route between Adamstown and Belmont and will always be a sight for sore eyes (or weary legs). It’s bliss.
Haven’t left the middle of the city in a while? Want to try something new? Why not head to Warners Bay and take a stroll by the Lake. The recent renovations look great and it’s perfect for that mid-morning/late afternoon stroll by the water. Why not grab a coffee whilst you’re there? Or better yet skip the walk altogether and just grab some hot chips and enjoy the sunset. Column A and column B ya know?
Most of us have been to Blackbutt Reserve, it just might have been a long time ago where you probably had a packed lunch and a teacher yelling at someone for chasing the geese. But, if it’s been a while between dranks why not spend an afternoon wandering around? There is always something new and exciting to see and plenty of wildlife to get you back in touch with nature.
The old faithful amirite? But how long has it been since you walked the length? Or maybe you walk the length and have always wanted to cut back across the sand for a sneaky romantic frolic in the water? Why not, you do you. But you can’t really get much more ‘iconic Newy’ than a stroll past Nobbys Lighthouse, maybe it’s time you revisited this part of town.
The ANZAC Walk
Confession, I hadn’t done the ANZAC walk until New Years Day this year. New Years Day at about 5 am might I add but it was still amazing and I’ve been many a time since. The walk is nice and steady, and you can feel like you’re strenuously exercising just by associating yourself with all of the activewear you pass in the morning. It’s a great feeling. But mostly, the view is are amazing and who doesn’t love some salt spray in the afternoon?
