Lilly Pilly Loop Trail

GPS Route            Watch Video

In the Wyrrabalong National Park on the NSW Central Coast is the Lilly Pilly Trail. With parking on the Western (North Bound) side of Wilfred Barrett Drive between The Entrance and Norah Head this trail starts off with a large sign and a picnic table. The Lilly Pilly Loop Trail is approximately a 5km round trip from the car park and back although there are several other little points where you can stop and start. You can also follow the main road back to the car park if you so wish.

The only time I have done the Lilly Pilly Loop Trail I combined it with the Red Gum Trail (Information Here) and tackled the whole walk in an anti clockwise direction. If you wish to just do this trail you can still enter the same way but head straight a head up the Burrawang Walking Track and either opt for clockwise or anti clockwise once you reach the T Junction. The trail is well sign posted so to be easy to follow.

Upon starting on the Lilly Pilly Loop section of the track heading anti clockwise you are faced with a pretty steep sand hill but from memory it does have rubber matting to aid in traction for walkers and maintenance vehicles.Once passing that hill the trail weaves its way through the bush with dense Red Gum forest slowly turning into a rainforest environment with more ferns, palms and grasses and of course the Lilly Pilly. The Eastern line of the Lilly Pilly Loop Trail runs at times right along the water’s edge for Tuggerah Lakes and has well maintained trails although in some areas it has a lot more vegetation along on the path itself.

As with Red Gum Trail there is signage along the walk to inform you of wild life and plants that can be found in the area so make sure to stop and have a read of these signs. Following around you come upon a couple of T Junctions that either lead out onto Wilfred Barrett Drive or to continue through the rainforest and bush land. The Lilly Pilly Loop Link Track brings you along the train and eventually back onto the Burrawang Walking Track before heading back to the car park.
