National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) manager Angela Lonergan said the new work enhances the iconic experience and safety for visitors to Maitland Bay.

"The 103 new sandstone replaces the old wooden steps," Ms Lonergan said.

"With lots of whales passing on their annual migration now is a great time to get out and experience the upgraded walk.

"With the help of local contractors the NPWS has been upgrading the popular eight kilometre coastal walk to ensure it remains one of the most spectacular tracks on the Central Coast.

"Visitors can enjoy the pristine beaches and sweeping views from the coastal walk which stretches from Putty Beach past Maitland Bay to Macmasters Beach.

"The sandstone and materials had to be flown in by helicopter to this remote site," Ms Lonergan said.
