The Fernleigh Track is an attractive and popular walking and cycling path, created along the route of a former rail corridor in the Newcastle and Lake Macquarie regions of New South Wales.
It provides a pleasant travel route through a bushland setting with links along the way to adjoining residential communities. The track is a popular facility, used for both localised commuting and recreational purposes.
The 15km shared pathway from Adamstown to Belmont is fantastic for walking or cycling.
Please note: The use of motorbikes on the Fernleigh Track is illegal.
