Remember to take your binoculars if you want to bird watch or whale watch.

If you enjoy a remote spot for a relaxing lunch, then head to the Wasp Head picnic area near South Durras in Murramarang National Park. The low-key facilities means it’s a great picnic spot, with great views and birdwatching, without the crowds.

For a post picnic stroll, try the easy Wasp Head walk where you can gaze across Wasp Island and nearby Emily Miller beach. If you’re after something more relaxing, try your hand at fishing or kick back and relax under the she-oaks.

Don’t forget the binoculars as herons, oyster catchers and shearwaters fish around the island. Keep your eye out for sea-eagles, peregrine falcons in the skies above.
