Remember to take your binoculars if you want to birdwatch.

Surrounded by bush, yet only moments away from the beach, Gerroa picnic area is a perfect way to escape and unwind. It’s accessible and offers something for everyone, yet remarkably secluded and peaceful.

Find a grassy patch under the trees and spread out your blanket, or set up your feast on one of the picnic tables provided. After lunch, why not wander over the dunes to the nearby Seven Mile Beach for a swim or a spot of fishing? Take in fresh sea air and stroll along the golden stretch of beach.

If you enjoy birdwatching, take a walk through the forests along the Sand track walk (north) towards Beach Road picnic area. Look out for the white-naped Honeyeater, little wattlebird or the black-faced cuckoo-shrike. But when all else fails, just sit back, relax and enjoy the tranquil surroundings with a good book and the sound of the waves breaking in the distance.
