Starting at Mount Bouddi (Dingeldei) picnic area, Mount Bouddi walking track is a short and easy walk through beautiful bushland with spectacular coastal views, making it a must-do for anyone visiting Bouddi National Park.

With some short steep sections, this walking track leads through eucalypt woodlands dotted with grass trees and burrawangs. Watch for flashes of vibrant colour as parrots dart through the trees and listen for the uplifting laughter of the kookaburras. Before long the bush will open up with panoramic views of the coastline with Bouddi Point and Maitland Bay bombora before you.

If you’ve still got energy to burn there’s the option to return via Bouddi Coastal walk to the south, then follow Maitland Bay track and Strom loop back to Mount Bouddi Road. Otherwise retrace your steps with the option to enjoy a leisurely lunch at Mount Bouddi (Dingeldei) picnic area.
