It’s a shame that I had never visited Bouddi National Park before in spite of living in Sydney for so many years. But one day while researching for all the national parks in Sydney, I stumbled upon the Bouddi National Park and the pictures of the park were amazingly beautiful. I researched further more and found a very short but a picturesque walk which was the Second Point Trail.
