Maitland Bay Track

Natural Attractions

Maitland Bay track is one of Bouddi National Park’s most popular bushwalks. This short, steep walking track begins at Maitland Bay Information Centre. It then winds downhill to the secluded Maitland Bay, past the Bullimah Spur track junction, rock landings, gullies, Hawkesbury sandstone and Bouddi Grand Deep rainforest.

Stop to swim, look for shells or simply dip your feet in the water. If it’s low tide, head to the bay’s eastern end to see remains of the PS Maitland, tragically wrecked in 1898. Allow 15 to 20 minutes to walk down the hill and 30 to 40 minutes to get back up. Some find it tough going on the return, so you may wish to walk the flatter three kilometres to Putty Beach and have someone pick you up there.
