Munmorah State Conservation Area
Pink Caves is closed to visitors because it’s extremely unsafe to visit. The cave is located in Munmorah State Conservation Area near Moonee.
Pink Caves, also known as Cotton Candy Caves, is not an approved visitor site. The caves are filled with water at high tide, and even at low tide can be dangerous as ocean swell sends unpredictable waves sweeping into the cave and over the rock shelf. Sudden rogue waves can cause serious injury, knocking you over and dragging you across the rocks or out to sea.
There’s no lifeguard service in this area and access for emergency services is limited.
In addition, there’s no approved walking track to get to this location. Access to the caves involves walking over a rock shelf which is slippery, uneven and dangerous.
This delightful walk through scenic coastal heath leads to the white sands of Moonee beach where you can relax, swim or fish before heading back along the walk.
After a tasty picnic lunch, escape to the cool rainforest of the Palms circuit track for an short loop walk beneath a canopy of cabbage tree palms.
Check the surf and keep a keen eye out for whales from the lookout at Tea Tree picnic area. A short walk to Birdie Beach, it’s a great spot to stop for lunch and a swim.
