Murramarang National Park

Open, check current alerts 


Snake Bay is a small, isolated bay in Murramarang National Park. You can only reach it on the walk between Pebbly Beach and Pretty Beach.

Snake Bay is a sheltered cobble beach flanked by rock formations. From Pebbly Beach it’s about a 5.6km return journey and takes you through lush rainforest gullies and along deserted beaches. The track begins from Pebbly Beach carpark on Mount Agony Road via the Princes Highway at East Lynne. From Pretty Beach it’s about a 10.4km return journey.

Perch yourself on the sand or rocks beds to enjoy a snack before continuing you walk—or head into the water for a swim. Snake Bay is fairly well sheltered and is safe for swimming.
