Federation Track North is a future extension to the Federation Track that contains spectacular coastal scenery, densely forested mountain ridges and temperate rainforests. It has been proof-walked for 807 kilometres to the Carrai Plateau west of Kempsey.
The Federation Track North route links and follows the Great North Walk from Circular Quay to Queens Wharf, Newcastle and the remains of the Tops to Myall Heritage Trail from Hawks Nest to Polblue Swamp in Barrington Tops National Park. The rest of the route is along forestry fire trails and back country roads.
The route has been proof-walked and way-pointed as far as Kookaburra Hut on the Carrai Plateau.
