Geotrails provide a unique tourism experience by guiding visitors on a journey that is focused on the local geology. Designed to promote an understanding of earth science, they enable people to explore the natural environment and learn about its diversity.
Geotrails may feature walking tracks and driving routes, lookouts, points of interest, visitor centres and supporting information to encourage learning and an appreciation of our environment.
Port Macquarie coastal geotrail
The Port Macquarie Coastal Geotrail is a 4 km walk along the coast from Shelly Beach to Rocky Beach.
Newcastle coastal geotrail
The Newcastle Coastal Geotrail explores the prominent rock platforms and cliffs of the coastline from Nobbys Beach to Merewether headland.
Warrumbungle National Park geotrails
The Warrumbungle National Park geotrails follow existing walking tracks and roads to explore the eroded remnants of Warrumbungle Volcano.
Geotrails in development
Following on from the very popular Port Macquarie Coastal Geotrail and the recent launch of the Newcastle Coastal Geotrail, Warrumbungle National Park geotrails have now been released. Production has also started on geotrails for the central Darling River region and Mutawintji National Park.
All projects involve collaboration with local councils, site custodians, stakeholders and the community and each will have an associated printed brochure and a self-guided tour app available through the NSW GeoTours platform.
