The Solitary Islands Coastal Walk is very adaptable, you can chop it up how you like, and walk anything from a short 2km stroll between two headlands, to the full 60km from Red Rock to Sawtell.
The full four days is a great choice for those new to multi-day walking and for families, as you can stay and eat along the way and only need a light pack with essentials such as water, lunch and snacks, first aid.
Here is our suggested four day walk, follow the links for maps, distance, and logistics
- Day 1: Red Rock to Woolgoolga
- Day 2: Woolgoolga to Moonee
- Day 3: Moonee to Jetty
- Day 4: Jetty to Sawtell
The walk is easiest at low tide, as this makes the sand firmer and the creek crossing easier, as well as the headland at Campbells beach. We walked north to south, so that the sun was behind us. There are toilets and cafes at various points along the walk.
National Parks website has more information on the 60km Solitary Islands Coastal walk.
