Thirroul To Bulli Bike Track
About Thirroul To Bulli Bike Track:
Looking for a nice walk that's pram friendly or one to take your dog on? This walk is the one for you! You can start the walk in either direction but it is part of the NSW Coastline Cycleway Walk that leads all the way to Wollongong. This walk offers beaches along the way that are perfect for you and your doggo to stop off and cool down at. Unfortunately, your dogs need to only swim in designated spots so keep an eye out for areas they can swim. There is a cafe at Bulli beach near the surf life-saving club where you can grab something to eat or drink on the return. The walk takes around 1-2 hours on return, depending on how many places you decide to stop along the way. Without stopping, you can easily complete this walk within the hour.
Starting The Walk From Thirroul To Bulli:
After finding a park within the residential area, you will find the start of the track at the end of Hamilton road, next to Bark at the Beach. The path will lead you over a small bridge where you will see walk past many native plants before leading you along the many luxurious houses that overlook the beach. When you aren't gawking at the incredible homes you are mesmerised by the stunning coastal views that will be to your left. McCauley's Beach is one of the spots you can stop to take photos or a sneaky swim if you get a little warm along the way.
You do have the ability to walk along the actual beach if the track isn't for you but remember that dogs aren't permitted everywhere and it is not accessible for wheelchairs or prams. From McCauley's Beach, your next stop will be Sandon point reserve where you have a patrolled beach, rock pools and a beautiful lookout at Bulli Point. From here you have the option to continue on through to Wollongong, or turn back and return the same way you came.
Continue along the main bike track from here and follow the path along side the road through to Wanoira Point.
