Spring beauty, Pink Matchheads


The bushwalk through Awabakal Nature Reserve is on the coast south of Newcastle. The park has impressive ocean views and beautiful bird life. The most spectacular time to discover this walk is during early spring when everything comes to life with colour. The park is a haven for wildflowers from small shrubs to the Coastal Tea Tree.
