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.

The Bouddi National Park is a protected area in the Central coast of New South Wales (NSW) state in Australia. There are two vehicle entrances into the national park – one is at Putty Beach Drive and the other at the Scenic road. An entry fee of AUD 8 per vehicle per day applies to enter the national park.
