Fernleigh Track

The Fernleigh Track is one of the region’s most popular shared pathways, which follows a disused coal haul rail line between Adamstown and Belmont, providing a peaceful and scenic walking or cycling track, through beautiful bushland and wetland areas.

The 15km route passes through the suburbs of Adamstown, Kahibah, Whitebridge, Redhead, Jewells and terminating adjacent to Belmont TAFE.

The track traverses Glenrock State Conservation Area, Awabakal Nature Reserve and the Belmont Wetlands State Park.

It provides a peaceful and scenic walking or cycling track, where visitors can observe a variety of flora and fauna from some of the unique habitats within Lake Macquarie and Newcastle.

The shared pathway is a joint project of Lake Macquarie and Newcastle City Councils. Funding for this project was provided by both councils and State and Federal Government grants.
