Great Walks PSNM

There are hundreds of wonderful walks right across NSW to choose from. Visit the Walks Near Me map to find a walk to suit your ability and interests.

Walking to or through public spaces connects you to where you live, learn, visit, work and play. Below we have featured some great walks across the state, from forest tracks and coastal walks through to heritage trails, there is something for everyone.

It is also a way to fully experience a place – as we know from Dr. Danièle Hromek “Aboriginal people have always walked Country… it’s a means of knowing and caring for Country”.
