Beginning your hike.
Today will be all about the picturesque coastline. 10k distance (5 hours)
Diamond Head Beach is a standout destination - one of many glorious beaches on the Mid North Coast if NSW, and is the perfect showcase for what the sleepy town of Laurieton and the surrounding area has to offer.
You will experience a picture-perfect setting, with golden sandy beaches, pristine water and waves that are ideal for swimming in. It’s easily accessible by foot and is rich in both marine and shore-dwelling wildlife. You may be lucky enough to see pods of dolphins as they frequent the waters just off the beach’s main strip. Whales can even be spotted during their annual migration season. The beach also boasts outstanding surfing conditions around the Diamond headland.
At the end of the day’s hike, you’ll be transported to the Diamond Waters Caravan Park, where our camp site will be waiting.
Time to sit back, relax and enjoy a tasty Aussie BBQ, served with your choice of a lovely glass of wine or an ice cold beer, or another beverage that takes your fancy. (Note - BYO alcohol. Soft drinks, tea and coffee will be provided.

After fueling up for the day on your choice of bacon and eggs or something lighter, its time to begin our hike up North Brother Mountain.
The summit of North Brother Mountain is 490 metres and offers superb views over the coastline, the lakes and the mouth of the Camden Haven River. You’ll also be able to see as far as Crowdy and Harrington, as well as Middle Brother and South Brother Mountains in the distance. This is one of Australia's most impressive coastal panoramas. On May 12th, 1770, Captain James Cook entered in his ship’s log a description of his experiences of the sailing of Laurieton and you can read an excerpt of this on a special plaque at the top of the mountain.
The area is characterised by large stands of rainforest, which are rich in native fauna and flora.
