Located between Newcastle and Lake Macquarie, Glenrock State Conservation Area offers an astounding array of recreational opportunities.

Glenrock embraces the last surviving pocket of coastal rainforest in the region, home to a range of animals, like bandicoots, bats and gliders. So remember to leave your pets at home. The park also protects a number of ancient Aboriginal sites.

One of the city's most popular beaches lies within the park's boundaries, but there is much more here than sand and surf. Take your mountain bike and explore the scenic cycling trails, walk the rainforest and waterfall tracks, launch a hang glider off the cliffs or enjoy a spot of fishing.

The onsite accommodation is available at Baileys Cottage, perfectly positioned on the fringe of Glenrock State Conservation Area. It’s a great place for a weekend getaway or family holiday. The cottage is fully self-contained with 3 bedrooms (2 queen beds, 2 single beds), fully equipped kitchen and lounge/dining room with air conditioning and a bathroom with hot shower, toilet and handbasin. Please visit their website for more information and bookings.

Disabled access available, contact operator for details.
