NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) Director for North Coast Russell Madeley said the master plan outlines proposed works to improve the range and quality of experiences on offer in Arakoon National Park and Hat Head National Park.

'The project will include a revitalisation of the Trial Bay campground including new walking tracks, picnic shelters and upgraded access roads, amenities and campsites,' said Mr Madeley.

'At Little Bay, new family friendly walking and bike paths along with upgraded visitor facilities will revive this precinct as a favoured location for family gatherings.

'The Cardwell Street beach access will become a key attraction for day visitors in the future, with improved parking and facilities.

'We’re also planning to address the growing demand for bushwalking opportunities through the creation of a coastal walk between Trial Bay and Smoky Cape, which will provide stunning views over the coastline.

'Public exhibition of this draft master plan provides an opportunity for members of the community to have their say on the proposed works.

'We look forward to hearing community feedback on this master plan,' Mr Madeley said.

The Macleay Coast Destination masterplan is on public exhibition until 10 January 2023.
