A walk along Bathers Way in sunny Newcastle, Australia

The Bathers Way is a walking track which runs along the beautiful coast line of Newcastle from Nobbys Beach to Merewether Beach taking in many scenic points along the way including look outs on top of hills to beautiful beaches and ocean baths.  We walked from Nobbys Beach to Merewether Beach and back again which was a total of 12.5 kms, there is not many better ways to spend a beautiful sunny day in Newcastle.  Below are some pictures from our walk.
