Panoramic coastal views are only one of the attractions on this moderate track, encircling the headland at Hat Head. Korogoro walking track, on the easternmost tip of Hat Head National Park, winds through rare littoral rainforest and heathlands, dotted with wildflowers and endangered native grasses.
As the path climbs steeply, stop to catch your breath and admire the stand of she-oaks; an important food source for glossy black cockatoos. The region is also home to rare kangaroo grasses which, although threatened, are thriving in the park due to the dedicated efforts of rangers and local community groups.
Emerging through windswept banksias, enjoy the refreshing ocean breeze. A perfect spot for a break, take in the spectacular view over a picnic lunch. Keep your eyes peeled for the distinct white flannel flowers that burst into bloom in spring.
