  • This section of the coast is part of Batemans Marine Park.
  • Remember to take your binoculars if you want to bird watch or whale watch.

Give yourself a couple of hours to immerse yourself in the surroundings on the 2.2km Murramarang Aboriginal Area walking track along the coastline. Interpretive signs offer insight into some of the most culturally significant Aboriginal sites along the track. The beginning of the walk is along a sand track from the carpark, and the undeveloped location is very evocative, making it easier to imagine how the landscape would have looked thousands of years ago when large numbers of Aboriginal people lived here.

As well as the cultural significance, the walk offers incredible coastal views, including clear views to Brush Island . You might see kangaroos grazing on the grassland or sea eagles soaring overhead as you’re ambling along. Don’t forget your swimmers either – when the weather is warm, you’ll definitely want to go for a splash in the waves.
