The views, the views! Hiking up the Mount Tomaree Summit Walk rewards your efforts. This is the ocean view north to Hawks Nest and Broughton Island

 

Hiking Up Tomaree Head at Port Stephens

Tomaree Head Summit Walk is not long, but it is certainly steep. The official difficulty rating is medium. The walk is only 1km in length, but takes about 30 minutes due to the steep climb. The summit is 161 metres high.

Tomaree Head Summit Walk Details

Start at the Zenith Beach car park and follow the well signed track.  Afterwards enjoy a cooling dip at Zenith Beach, or drive down to Shoal Bay as we did.
