The Nitty Gritty

Location: Palm Beach, Sydney
Distance: 1.8 – 2.0 km
Trail style: Return/Circuit
Grade: Easy

Started 2016 with an easy walk up to the Barrenjoey Lighthouse. Best place to park is near the Palm Beach Lifesaving Club or the Boathouse. Walking from the club offers walkers the chance to walk on the beach made famous in soapie Home & Away, while parking near the Boathouse will start from Barrenjoey beach.

While easy, there is a little bit of a climb (91m above sea level). This walk is accessible any time of the year – highly recommended anytime between late May and November to coincide with whale watching season. Best avoided on rainy and/or windy days (quite steep and slippery with minimal cover).
