There’s a very pleasant run along the Hunter River in Stockton, a suburb of Newcastle just across from Nobbys Beach. A paved multi-use trail runs along the water, featuring nice views. Pro Tip: You can drive to Stockton, or, more fun, take the ferry from Queens Wharf in central Newcastle.
Our route starts from Little Beach with an optional ~2 km out and back along Shipwreck Walk, a path which leads out the breakwater. Then, the main path leads for up to 6.5 km along the river. So, a total out and back route could be up to 15 km.
- Up to 6.5 km one-way. Shipwreck Walk adds 2 km out and back.
- Little Beach
- Good option is to take the short ferry to Stockton from Queens Wharf in Newcastle
