About the Parnkalla Walking Trail

The trail follows the coastline around Boston Bay, passing historic sites.

The central section of trail, from Axel Stenross Maritime Museum to Billy Lights Point (11.2km) is well maintained. The trail continues south-west a further 15km connecting to the Investigator Trail, although this trail is more natural, and less well marked. The central trail is 2 metres wide and bitumen. The northern section, from Axel Stenross Maritime Museum to North Shields Caravan Park (8.8km) is also a natural trail. Recent works up to 2015 have upgraded the trail to a higher standard.
