NPWS Area Manager Tamara Campbell said the upgrade has realigned sections of track between Elizabeth Beach and Seven Mile Beach for a better walking experience.

'Booti Hill walking track is part of a greater 8-kilometre loop walk that features coastal views, lush rainforest, and a meandering trail along the tranquil shores of Wallis Lake, which offers family-friendly opportunities for swimming and picnicking,' said Ms Campbell.

'This $470,000 project has significantly improved the bushwalking experience and we are thrilled that the upgraded walk is now open and visitors can once again enjoy this jewel of Booti Booti National Park and spend time connecting with nature.

'We’ve improved the grade of the track and incorporated additional drainage features in a way that is sensitive to the local environment.

'These changes will make the track more resilient and able to better withstand future rain events.

'We welcome visitors to come and experience the stunning loop walk, which beautifully captures the unique interplay between the lake and the coast which makes this area so special. There are some lovely vantage points to sit and take in the view,' said Ms Campbell.

Booti Booti National Park sits on an 8-kilometre peninsula between the Pacific Ocean and Wallis Lake, near Forster. The park includes beaches, lakeshore, coastal rainforest, walking tracks, lookouts and opportunities for picnicking and camping.
