Throsby Creek Walking Loop, CARRINGTON (NEWCASTLE) NSW

There’s nothing better than a Sunday afternoon stroll to finish off the weekend, especially by the water!

The Newcastle Region has so many beautiful walking tracks to explore and we recently ticked off another one in Carrington.

Carrington is a suburb of Newcastle and sits just north of the CBD.

The track we walked along is part of the Newy Parkrun route and the distance we covered was just under 5kms.

We parked the car at the Carrington boat ramp and set off towards Newcastle Rowing Club.  

This track follows Throsby Creek along a flat well-formed path.

It wasn’t too long before the kids spotted a playground and they were excited to stop for a play before continuing on.

We side-stepped and zigzagged along the boardwalk until we reached the other side of Throsby Creek.

At the end of the boardwalk you reach the main road.  If you turn left and walk over the Hannell Street bridge you will see the track off to the left along the creek.  This is a shared walk/cycleway with a bitumen path all the way back towards the Newcastle Yacht Club.

“A DROP IN THE OCEAN” is a play structure that is near the start of the track on the western side of Throsby Creek.  Another good spot for the kids to stop and have a play.
