Heaton Gap to Charlestown Park
7 h 30 min to 12 h 30 min
Starting from Leggetts Drive near Watagan Forest Motel, this walk heads south along the road before turning left on Gap Road. It then follows the Great North Walk through the Sugarloaf State Conservation Park before crossing the Pacific Motorway. From then on it follows roads to Speers Point where views open over Lake Macquarie. Have a break here before heading on past Charlestown Golf Course and a few more pockets of bushland to reach Charlestown Park. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
