Copacabana, MacMasters; Little Beaches, Bombi Moor Trail; Coastal Walk to Maitland Bay, Bullimah Spur Tk to Marie Byles Lookout, Hardys Bay, Pretty Beach, Wagstaffe. A top coastal walk with amazing views – this section of coastal walk has been upgraded with impressive sandstone stairways. Tracks, trails, some connecting roads. Suggested public transport for weekdays: Bus #66A from Gosford Station Stand J at 8:45am to Copacabana Surf Club. At end of walk, ferry from Wagstaffe to Ettalong – weekday services (when running): 14:20, 15:20, 17:20. Otherwise can get a bus #59 from Wagstaffe to Empire Bay Drive at 16:40, then bus #64 to Woy Woy Station. From Ettalong wharf, walk along foreshore walk and streets to bus stop in Ocean Bay Rd in front of Ettalong Diggers for most frequent buses to Woy Woy Station. Check whether Cockrone Lagoon is open to sea between Copacabana and McMasters Beaches – only a problem if there has been a long period of rainfall (no short road bypass should the channel be uncrossable).
