Opportunity to comment on the Macleay Coast Destination draft master plan has now ended.
The NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service is reviewing all submissions and will prepare a submissions summary to outline feedback received and how this is considered in the master plan. We will advise everyone when the submissions summary is available online.
The Trial Bay, Cardwell Street, Little Bay and Smoky Cape precincts are popular visitor destinations within the Arakoon and Hat Head national parks, near South West Rocks on the NSW mid north coast. Trial Bay is often described as the jewel in the crown of the Macleay Valley Coast, and Smoky Cape lighthouse offers spectacular views of the coast.
What is being proposed?
The NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service is committed to improving and modernising visitor facilities in these parks to enhance the experience of visitors and locals alike.
Plans include the development of new walking tracks, amenities blocks, shelters and upgraded access roads at the Trial Bay campground.
At Little Bay, enhanced facilities and new family-friendly walking and bike paths will reinvigorate this cherished precinct as a favoured location for family gatherings.
Bushwalkers will rejoice at the prospect of a spectacular new coastal walking track between Little Bay and Smoky Cape.
This exciting project will boost the regional visitor economy, with new nature-based and heritage experiences enticing visitors to stay longer in the region and strengthening the Macleay Coast's appeal as a year-round quality destination.
