Doing an overnighter in Bouddi National Park on Darkinjung land mid week was the best decision I made last week. Although the ride up isn't all too pleasant along Barrenjoey Road, and out Empire Road, but to get a beach to myself with an epic sunrise was worth it.
Part 1 - Manly to Palm Beach ride (strava link) - 32 kms
Thank goodness the Palm Beach hotel was kind enough to sell me a can of Balter XPA and a bottle of sparkling water.
Part 2 - Palm Beach to Wagstaffe ferry (check timetable)
The 4pm ferry is the tradie home time ride with BYO eskies and roadies.
Wagstaffe general store/post office has 2 freezers of ice-cream to choose from. However they are not next to each other so make sure you look around before making your final selection.
Part 3 - Wagstaffe to Tallow ride (strava link) - 3.3kms
Dinner: Ramen and corn.
Sleep: Tallow beach camping site (booking site)
Part 1 - Tallow to Gosford ride (strava link)
Woke up to a firey sun rise, had a solo dance on the beach soaking up the serenity before the trek home. Empire Road is not the best, brace yourself.
Part 2 - Gosford to Sydney train
